Infant specialist Magda Gerber shows parents her methods for raising a confident, self-motivated child. Based on her decades of observing and working with children and their parents, Gerber's refreshing, "back-to-basics" approach works from the premise that each child is unique and should be allowed to develop at his or her own pace. Parents who attend her workshops at Resources for Infant Educarers in Los Angeles learn to observe and trust their children, trust them to be initiators, explorers, and self-learners, and to assist them in discovering and developing their unique styles of problem-solving and mastery.
