Baby Knows Best: Raising a Confident and Resourceful Child, the RIE™ Way
Raise self-confident, self-reliant children using the RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers) Approach.
Your baby knows more than you think. That's the heart of the principles and teachings of Magda Gerber, founder of RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers), and Educaring.
