Introduction ‘Parenting’

In this sprint you will develop the following knowledge: 

  • I can help parents understand how responding to babies in a predictable, sensitive and attuned way builds trust and security. 
  • I can talk about how a parent is a baby’s favourite toy. 
  • I understand that positive, nurturing interactions reduce the risk of maltreatment and support the development of healthy relationships which lay important foundations for lifelong health and wellbeing.

Reflect upon ‘Parenting’

Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs is a psychological theory that suggests people have a hierarchy of needs, and once lower-level needs are satisfied, they can move on to fulfilling higher-level needs. While Maslow’s theory is not specifically designed for parenting, some researchers and scholars have explored its application to parenting and family dynamics.
