What about EC!
EC babies and parents and families are loving and caring units of humanity!
EC is a child empowering behavior.
EC builds trust.
Baby learns: what I say is what I mean and my parents understand me.
Parent thinks: I notice her and she sees me helping; she trusts that I will be there for her.
EC creates thinking pathways for baby: Baby thinks: My parent is letting me use my brain, and I am smarter because I know what is happening to me and can communicate it.
EC fosters independence and self-care. Parent thinks: When she wants to do something all by herself, I know that her developing abilities will let her take full charge from start to finish.
Right from the beginning, EC is a direct route to the cultural standard, the toilet, and it is offered immediately; it is made available to the brand new baby.
EC is an interactive happy experience. Interactive is the new museum way, the classroom way, the modern way of learning; so is the at-home and out-and-about EC way. Let's go the EC way!
