"I think RIE should be a national program so that parents all over the country can have the opportunity that my family had." --Dee Dee Myers, former White House Press Secretary "How to be attentive but not intrusive, loving but not smothering, kind but not indulging, guiding but not controlling, strict but not rigid--all this is wonderfully laid out in RIE's Educaring Approach. We are raising an independent being that I can feel incredibly close to. Thank you Magda Gerber and all the wonderful infant educarers!" --Hank Azaria, actor "One of the best things that ever happened to me as a mother was discovering RIE. I'm forever indebted to Deborah Solomon and my other RIE teachers for helping me slow down, understand and respect my baby. Even though my daughter is now nine, she is still a RIE baby at heart: calm, confident and self-motivated. Baby Knows Best is a treasure of insights and wisdom. I will be giving this invaluable book to every new mother I know." --Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette "Oustanding! Absorbing and powerful. Deborah Solomon's experiences augment Magda Gerber's teachings and expand our thinking about who babies are and what they need. This book is loaded with potent new ideas--ideas that in some ways are quite different from the usual advice experts give parents. Easy to read, eye-opening, hard to forget!" --Janet Gonzalez-Mena, co-author of "Infants, Toddlers, and Caregivers" and author of "Diversity in Early Care and Education: Honoring Differences" "The RIE program is the single most relatable, intuitive, and common sense approach to the modern day conundrum of parenting. "Baby Knows Best" is the guide book. It helps you get back to basics and makes you a better, more confident parent as you learn that Babies do indeed Know Best. A must-have." --Jamie Lee Curtis "This terrific book is written by someone who really understands daily life with a baby. Deborah Carlisle Solomon shows how you can build an enjoyable relationship with your baby through the power of observation."--Sue Gerhardt, author of Why Love Matters: How Affection Shapes a Baby's Brain "Outstanding! Absorbing and powerful. Deborah Solomon's experiences augment Magda Gerber's teachings and expand our thinking about who babies are and what they need. This book is loaded with potent new ideas--ideas that in some ways are quite different from the usual advice experts give parents. Easy to read, eye-opening, hard to forget!" --Janet Gonzalez-Mena, co-author of "Infants, Toddlers, and Caregivers" and author of "Diversity in Early Care and Education: Honoring Differences" "An invaluable contribution for parents and for anybody who cares about young children. RIE offers a gentle, supportive approach that fosters your self-confidence and helps you rediscover the joys of raising a child. A refreshing departure from the didactic, overly prescriptive books that seem to dominate the parenting literature. I strongly recommend it." --Alicia Lieberman, PhD, author of "The Emotional Life of the Toddler" "RIE gave us a loving methodology for how to do the most important thing in the world--understand and nurture our babies. It fostered a communication and interplay that we've built upon all their lives. This was invaluable and loving knowledge." --Jason Alexander, actor "A quietly brilliant parenting book, full of wisdom and calm guidance."--"Publishers Weekly "(Starred Review) "RIE has been a blessing in our lives, giving us the chance to learn that our baby can teach us best when we observe carefully. We've learned to respect him as he expresses his needs." --Gustavo Dudamel, music director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and his wife EloAsa Maturen"
