MISSION AND PHILOSOPHY
Basics of RIE
Respect and authenticity!
RIE helps parents demonstrate respect for their babies in practical ways, every time we interact with them, thus helping them to become their true selves.
An authentic child is one who feels secure, autonomous, competent, and connected. When we help a child to feel secure, feel appreciated, feel that “somebody is deeply, truly interested in me,” by the way we just look, the way we just listen, we influence that child’s whole personality, the way that child sees life.
