Parents are children’s first teachers. Through play, communication, and touch, parents convey love to their child as well as information about the world. During everyday interaction parents teach their children names of objects, how things work, what is safe, and myriad other lessons. These early experiences prepare a child for social-emotional development, literacy and higher level thinking.
