Parents, caregivers, and professionals can promote healthy social and emotional development in babies and young children.
Over the past few decades we have learned that adverse early childhood experiences may lead to escalating issues that can linger and create problems later in life.

How we take care of babies will impact their mental health either positively or in an unhealthy manner.
