Early Literacy Tip: Love Helps a Child Grow

"Scientific studies have shown that children develop best when they have a strong, positive relationship with at nurturing adult."

--The Early Literacy Kit by Betsy Diamant and Saroj Ghoting

In Episode 3, the Early Literacy Tip we discussed was about LOVE - how important being loved by a caring adult is to a child's well being and ability to flourish as they grow.

Being loved, hugged and kissed, helps children to physically grow, but also to develop their thinking, comprehension and burgeoning intellect. When a child is loved he or she is truly free to be who they are fully capable of being.
