The Importance Of Parent-Child Interactions
Parents share a unique relationship with their children and this continues to develop over a lifetime.
It is understood that through parents’ warm, loving responses to their infants and toddlers during daily routines that important reciprocal parent-child interactions are established.
These important interactions are based on a family’s cultural patterns and beliefs and cannot be underestimated in the way they influence a child’s development. Social emotional competence grows from these early parent-child interactions and from this, a child’s cognitive abilities emerge.
