In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.

Less and less is done.
Until non-action is achieved.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.

The world is ruled by letting things take their course.
It cannot be ruled by interfering.

Psychology Today Article - Where are the Happy Babies? Written by Darcia Naravez

Hi Everyone,

I was reading another blog and came across an interesting article

Where Are the Happy Babies?
Have we forgotten what babies need from (ALL OF) us?

Written for Pychology Today by Darcia Narvaez, Associate Professor of Psychology and Director of the Collaborative for Ethical Education at the University of Notre Dame, it raises some very interesting points. Primarily it asks us, as a society, whether we are making every effort to provide parents with the opportunity to care for and enjoy their children, not just physically but emotionally and spiritually?

Informal community groups appear to be on the decline in many areas, so a deliberate focus on creating community appears to be ever more necessary nowadays.

This effort toward community will promote the feeling of wellbeing a happily attached child and their well supported parent/caregivers can experience.

Definately an article worth reading and an ideal worth working towards.

Talk Soon, Cynthia x
