Much of the book is devoted to toddler and early childhood traumas such as falling off a bike, fear of spiders, nightmares, getting stitches, and asthma attacks. The few pages that focus on infancy are extremely important and every mother should read them. They clearly teach that what you feel in your nervous system the baby will feel in theirs. Words, even when not understood by the baby, convey emotion. So, if you feel panic, he will feel panic. If you feel alarm, he will feel alarm. If you feel calm and centered, he will feel calm too.
Techniques for responding to distress are covered in detail. The multitude of stories presented assist parents in understanding how to apply these techniques immediately and creatively! I run an on-line guide for parents about how babies master their motor milestones, and I recommend this book to everyone!
