Although simple, your baby's gift to you are powerful enough to change your life positively.

  • Unqualified Love
  • Absolute Trust
  • The Thrill of Discovery
  • The Heights of Emotion

From birth, you are the center of your child's universe. He gives you his love without question and without demand. As he gets older, he will show this love in countless ways, from showering you with his first smile to giving you his handmade valentines. His love is filled with admiration, affection, loyalty, and an intense desire to please you.

Your child believes in you. In her eyes, you are strong, capable, powerful, and wise. Over time, she will demonstrate this trust by relaxing when you are near. Sometimes, she will lean on you for protection from things that frighten her, including her own sensitivities. For example, in your presence she may try out new skills that she would never dare alone or with a stranger. She trusts you to keep her safe.

Having a baby gives you a unique chance to discover the pleasure and excitment of childhood. Although you cannot relive your life through your child, you can share in his delight as he explores the world. In the process, you probably will discover abilities and talents you never dreamed you possessed. Feeling of empathy mixed with growing self-awareness will help shape your ability to play and interact with your growing child. Discovering things together, whether they be new skill or words or ways to overcome obstacles, will add to your experience and confidence as a parent and will better prepare you for new challenges that you never even envisioned.

Through your child, you will experience new heights of joy, love, pride, and excitement. You probably also will experience anxiety, anger, and frustration. For all those delicious moments when you hold your baby close and feel her loving arms around your neck, there are bound to be times when you feel you cannot communicate. For you as a parent, the challenge will be to accept and appreciate all the feeling your baby expresses herself and arouses in you, and to use them in giving her steady guidance.
