Dancing with Your BABY:
For Bonding and Better Health for Both of You
"Every parent wants his or her child to feel connected, validated, and treasured. Dancing with Your Baby is a wonderful tool parents can use to develop deep, attuned connectedness. Since children internalize how their parents relate to them on a verbal and physical level, what better way to create this essential foundation than through dancing with them?"
