Exploring First Feelings

Resource Type

Video - Parent


"Using actual footage of parents and caregivers interacting with their young children, this tape illustrates milestones in the emotional development of infants and toddlers. The tape's emphasis is preventative and aims to promote the mental health of infants and young children. This tape enables the viewer to help a baby begin to develop healthy relationships with others by recognizing the infant's first feelings and responding to the baby's cues. It allows parents and caregivers to translate their hunches and questions about their child's emotions into "active" care giving. Six overlapping stages of healthy emotional development are identified showing a parent or caregiver providing a supportive environment for each stage." -Child Development Media, Inc.
