I am a supporter, user and student of this method. I am also a teacher trainer, and I would be missing so much, without the knowledge of this method.
That's the only reasoning for a 4 star review instead of a 5. I am skilled enough to sift through information and glean what applies to my situation, but it would have been nice to have more tips or advice based on my situation instead of feeling like the assumption was that I worked and left my child with a caretaker all day.
I've shared this book with people that are less familiar with RIE and they also appreciated it and took lots of direction from it. It's a great book to introduce caregivers to RIE methods.
Parents, this book has lots of useful suggestions to help you through the first few years of your baby's life. I've worked with dozens of children from many kinds of families. The families with the most RIE practices always have the most content, creative, independent, secure, and interactive children. It is especially stunning to me how dramatically different children's quality of movement is when they have been allowed freedom of movement and haven't been placed in positions (like sitting) that they can't get into on their own. All the RIE and Loczy books say that you can tell by a child's quality of movement if they have been placed in exersaucers, propped sitting, led by the hands when walking etc. I didn't believe it would really be that obvious, but it's true! Children really are the only ones who know when and how they need to learn and develop. All we have to do is provide a supportive environment, a responsive relationship, and leave the rest to them!
