Becoming a parent is one of the greatest changes in a person’s life. We want to give our baby our best! It can be a little surprising to feel so unprepared. At RIE, we help parents focus on what is essential and give their baby the best possible start. RIE parents practice being unhurried, sensitive to their babies’ needs, and confident in their ability to provide their baby with natural opportunities for growth. They observe and learn to listen for guidance from within themselves and from their baby. They do less, allowing their baby to learn. Most importantly, they enjoy their babies. They relax. They invest in this time knowing “I will do this now and later reap the benefits.” Parents tell us RIE helps them feel more confident, calm, and centered.
Classes for Parents
Learning from RIE Associates online or seeing the approach modeled in a RIE class helps parents make the approach their own. We offer live classes at RIE Centers in Los Angeles and in locations around the the world through our network of RIE Associates. We also offer online classes in a variety of time zones to meet people where they are.
