Join us for this unique and rare opportunity of experiencing RIE approach in action facilitated by Janet Lansbury, whose respectful parenting advice (www.janetlansbury.com) is quoted and shared by millions of readers worldwide.
Janet is the author of two bestselling books, Elevating Child Care: A Guide to Respectful Parenting and No Bad Kids: Toddler Discipline Without Shame. Janet is also the creator and host of “Janet Lansbury Unruffled,” one of the most downloaded parenting podcasts on the web and recommended listening by The Washington Post.
She studied directly with Magda Gerber, founder of RIE and has taught RIE classes in LA since 1994.
Janet will be teaching this one off class on Thursday, May 24th at ThetaHealing NYC center on 1133 Broadway from 12:30pm till 2pm.
During a RIE class, small groups of parents and babies come together in a calm, infant-friendly environment to observe and enjoy their infants exploring, interacting, and playing. Janet Lansbury will model how and when to intervene during play and will lead the subsequent discussion.
Participants learn key facts about child development, how to understand babies’ cues and respond to their wants and needs, and how their newfound observation skills can make family life more enjoyable. Babies for this class are grouped according to their gross motor development.
