There were a few times though when I wanted to say "Oh, Magda, your trauma is showing." Particularly when she talked about feeding and holding. But then again she herself says right at the beginning of the book, take what you need and leave the rest.
The example of an average RIE day at the end of the book helps illustrate how exceptional this way of thinking of and behaving with infants is, even if at times Gerber's specific words seem harsh. The reality of the practice seems quite loving and flexible.
to happen with as less as possible interruption as possible for example the book recommends to let child sit or walk when he/she is ready and can do it on his/her own. This will first of all give them self confidence and would have stronger and healthier back and neck bones and muscles.
Magda believes the less you do and the more you watch and observe infants natural abilities the better for the child you care for.
Magda is the founder of "RIE" Resources for Infant Educarers and has a wonderful philosophy for child care. Children brought up with respect will become adults that respect themselves and others as well.
Really recommend it to every one caring for infants.
