Product Description

Review

"This is a terrific book, packed with commonsense advice on the real basics of healthy mental and emotional development. Rahima is a wise and knowledgeable guide for parents struggling to raise good kids in a challenging world. Someday your children will thank you for reading this book!"
-Jane M. Healy, Ph.D., author of "Different Learners" and "Your Child's Growing Mind"
"Here is an extraordinary work for those who want to develop a truly intelligent child and, in the process, unlock new levels of their own intelligence and spirit. Rahima Baldwin Dancy gives us a brilliant new insight into early childhood based on the work of Rudolf Steiner and her own rich experience as mother, midwife, and teacher. I only wish it might be required reading for both men and women in all high schools and colleges."
-Joseph Chilton Pearce, author, "Magical Child"
"Every time I dip back into "You Are Your Child's First Teacher," and there have been many times, I feel like I have been gently elevated and reassured. Rahima gives a compass bearing to the parenting soul."
-Kim John Payne, M.ED., author of "Simplicity Parenting"
"In "You Are your Child's First Teacher" Baldwin Dancy offers counsel and advice as from a warm and caring friend, never condescending or authoritative, but encouraging, supportive, suggesting new approaches and offering her own experiences for consideration."
"-Home Education Magazine
"
"It is Baldwin Dancy's sensitive, sincere, and ever-so-natural tending to the soul and spirit, as well as mind and body, of the newborn and young child, that makes this a very special book."
"-The Wellspring Guide"
"Parents do not need a new set of rules or another authority telling them how to raise their children, only the capacity to see and understand the young child as a human being. Baldwin Dancy believes she can help parents harness the necessary 'cognitive and intuitive knowledge' to accomplish the task."
-The Brown University Child Behavior and Development Letter
"Baldwin Dancy helps us to see that there are real risks to treating our children like little adults. She suggests ways that we can enhance and nurture their development by making conscious choices in our efforts to educate."
"-Bookmarks," newsletter of the International Childbirth Education Association

This book has been the most helpful and eye opening book. It really helped me understand what my daughter needed at each age and how my everyday actions help her learn. It showed how little you need in terms of 'things' and helped me see how my daughter saw things. An absolute must for any parent.

I wanted to love this book. Since having children I am very interested in their development and what I can do to help them to become well rounded, thoughtful people. This book seems to be a bit of a philosophical text with much talk of the emerging spirit of the child and a lot of terribly modest anecdotes about the many things the author achieved whilst also raising her children brilliantly. That aside (maybe I am a little touchy since motherhood has drained all of my ambition and focus on my own career!) I believe in her approach to encouraging in a none pedagogical way and the importance of a stable and loving environment for children to explore in their own time. I did however prefer Steve Biddulph's book Raising boys.
