Discovering Magda Gerber and her RIE philosophy changed my understanding of being a wise parent. Completely.

“A world-renowned child therapist and infant specialist, Magda Gerber developed a revolutionary philosophy of infant care based on treating infants with respect and trust in their abilities to develop naturally at their own pace.
In 1973, Magda Gerber co-founded the non-profit organization Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) in Los Angeles, California. RIE was one of the first places in the United States to offer a specialized environment for infant observation and parent education.”
