Supporting Parents to Provide Nurturing Care for Young Children: The Fundamental Ingredients for a Better World
Richter, Linda M.
ZERO TO THREE, v38 n4 p10-15 Mar 2018
The global community is recognizing how "nurturing care" is critical for the developing child. The term encompasses health and nutrition, safety and security, responsive caregiving, and opportunities for inclusive early learning, all of which are afforded by loving parents and families and supportive communities. Public policies and services provide an enabling environment for the care of young children. However, nurturing care is under threat from extreme poverty, political and economic instability, conflicts, and emergencies which expose families to stresses that undermine nurturing care. Additional threats include the intrusion of digitization, social media, and artificial intelligence into relationships between parents and young children, all of which can interfere in responsive, nurturing relationships.
