‘Raising children in NZ’ series

It was great to see the first episode of homegrown kiwi TV show Raising Children in NZ on TVNZ 7 recently.  The show is airing on TVNZ 7 on Wednesday nights at 7.05pm and again on Thursdays at 4.05pm.

This week’s episode was an introduction to those early weeks and looked a little at attachment and being responsive to your baby.  It was great to see respected names like Lauren Porter from the Centre for Attachment talking to new (and experienced!) parents about the importance of learning about your baby’s emotional needs and meeting them in the early days.
