Présentation de l'éditeur

Janet Lansbury’s advice on respectful parenting is quoted and shared by millions of readers worldwide. Inspired by the pioneering parenting philosophy of her friend and mentor, Magda Gerber, Janet’s influential voice encourages parents and child care professionals to perceive babies as unique, capable human beings with natural abilities to learn without being taught; to develop motor and cognitive skills; communicate; face age appropriate struggles; initiate and direct independent play for extended periods; and much more. Once we are able to view our children in this light, even the most common daily parenting experiences become stimulating opportunities to learn, discover, and to connect with our child.

“Elevating Child Care” is a collection of 30 popular and widely read articles from Janet’s website that focus on some of the most common infant/toddler issues: eating, sleeping, diaper changes, communication, separation, focus and attention span, creativity, boundaries, and more. Eschewing the quick-fix ‘tips and tricks’ of popular parenting culture, Janet’s insightful philosophy lays the foundation for a closer, more fulfilling parent/child relationship, and children who grow up to be authentic, confident, successful adults.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Zen approach to child care - should be mandatory reading 8 juillet 2014
Par Ivy - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
In writing this book Janet Lansbury has elevated the RIE philosophy to a whole new level. I read Magda Gerber's books when I had my first child, and I found them to promote distant childcare - at least from my perspective of a new parent entirely steeped in the Attachment Parenting (AP) philosophy (my review of the book talks at length about the differences between AP and RIE Your Self-Confident Baby: How to Encourage Your Child's Natural Abilities -- From the Very Start. I was also in love with Maria Montessori's writings advocating respect for the child, so I didn't feel Magda's books offered a novel idea.

...until AP failed me. I loved spending every second with my son, I carried him everywhere, co-slept, nursed him until he self-weaned at 3.5yo, kissed him every chance I had, obsessed over his diet and bowel movements...only to find out this was never enough. He wanted more and more and more of me, until my self-sacrifice took a toll on my health and emotions. Just as an example, leaving the house was a 1-hour ordeal that started with "mommy don't go," moved into guilt trips "mommy I cry angel tears for you when you leave," proceeded into demands for treats or toys, and culminated in a heart-wrenching scream-fest a block or so down the road for all neighbors to see (might I add, in the arms of his dad which he adored, and who quit his job to be a stay-at-home parent). We were all out of give.

Having amassed an extensive library of parenting books, I revisited some of them in search for answers. Magda's book struck me differently then. I just had to be honest with my son (I have to leave tomorrow to go to work), validate his feelings (I know you don't like me to leave, I hate to go too), and comfort him if he cried without having to stop the meltdown (I see you're sad/disappointed....). Then magic happened. I could leave the house! That elusive `more" that my son wanted from me was validation, he wanted to know that I understood what he was going through, he did not want me to never leave the house. I started to pay more attention to how *I* felt and responded to his feelings. The key was to not take his feelings personally - they were his - but to make sure they were all acceptable in my book (including hysterical crying).

When I had my second baby, I decided to give RIE a more serious try. I read Janet Lansbury's blogs, followed her advice on Facebook, and a number of very smart parents who have now become "my village". I am blown away by the results. It's true that every child is different, but I am doing things very similar this time around (I'm still nursing on demand, co-sleeping, etc., etc.). The only difference: I am paying much more attention to my child, not assuming anything until I stop, watch, and think, and offer minimal intervention when I find out the cause. For e.g., my baby fusses and cries, I go over (no, no longer running frantically fire-drill style), I calmly say: "you sound upset". Then ***I OBSERVE*****. I don't pick up, latch on, and rock around the room until the crying stops. I look for clues as to what might have upset my baby. 90% of the time involves situations for which hugs and milk are the wrong response (such as toy fell off her reach, I stopped singing, brother left the room....). And then, I don't pick up the toy and put it in her hands, I simply validate: "you're upset because the toy fell. You were having fun with it." And then DO NOTHING. Simple, right?

Another situation: 6-mo old baby is congested, and wakes up mad throughout the night because she can't breathe and she can't nurse. With the first baby, the solution was saline spray followed by the Nosefrieda (my arms and feet wrapped around my squirming child, heart aching from having to put him through that). I knew the process did not hurt one bit, because I had resorted to spraying his nose in his sleep and he didn't even wake up. With the second child, I showed her the spray bottle and simply explained what was going to happen. First few times she squirmed and cried just as hard as my boy....until I RIE-d the process further. I just put her on her bed, and did not try to subdue her at all. Just told her what I was going to do and waited for her "permission" - any sign of readiness to proceed. I sprayed, she smiled, and it was over. Husband almost fell on the floor (yes, he often had to come help me hold the kids from flailing around while I cleaned their nose, all 6ft of him).

One of Janet's first chapters gives you the keys to resolve such situations. She proposes a role reversal. Think about yourself incapacitated, and your child (or some big bulky tall person) taking care of you. They show up with strange instruments, hold you down, and proceed to insert things into your nose - your only breathing apparatus!!!! - and you gag at the feeling, but you are powerless. Wouldn't you scream and fight too? (I've read alien abduction stories that went like this...). Going back to the separation anxiety example, suppose your loved one is leaving the house for an indeterminate amount of time over which you have no control, and he looks like he can't wait to get out the door, rushing through the house collecting clothes, keys, coffee, etc., you totally invisible at best, and at worst a nuisance. Wouldn't you cry too?

This book should be read by all parents - new and seasoned. I am not advocating RIE over any other parenting philosophy (although now I strongly prefer it). I think this book is a must for showing you how to think through situations from the eyes of a child (not just telling you to do so) and giving you the tools to respond in a respectful way (in other words the `how-to' missing from the Gerber and Montessori books). In addition, the book fills a very big gap in parenting books: how to raise emotionally intelligent children. I had read all about how important emotional intelligence is, all about how empathy is a better predictor of success than IQ, all about how boys grow up emotionally illiterate, etc. I had read Freud's writings inside and out while in college and knew early experiences might doom my child to perpetual counseling. I knew ABOUT the importance of all the above, but did not know the HOW to go about raising a child who knows what they feel, and knows that whatever they feel is ok (not what they do, what they feel - not advocating permissive parenting here), and knows how they want to be treated. (My older child has coached me through my mommy-tantrums a couple of times now).

The book is a collection of Janet's blogs, so one commenter questioned the need to buy the book at all. However, once you go down the RIE path, you will probably encounter resistance because your parenting will appear odd (what do you mean, you don't shush a crying baby? "You're ok" is the wrong thing to say?!! You don't want me to say "Good job!"??). To have a book that you can hand to your husband, nanny, parent, or whoever is taking care of your child (or judging your childcare), is much more convenient than printing out or forwarding blog articles. In addition, you can choose to purchase the audio version - which is what I did. I get more "listening" time than reading time these days. As an added bonus, Janet's voice conveys warmth, confidence, and happiness - a reminder that the childrearing years are good times, not drudgery to wish away or over with. Instead, she advocates an almost Zen approach to parenting: slow down, observe, listen, and be present. Even a messy diaper change can be an opportunity to connect with your child. In today's busy life where parents focus on doing more more and more for and to their child, this book points out the benefits of doing less, but doing it with your child. I am very indebted to this lady for the amazing difference she has made in my parenting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "Nothing awful can be done in the name of respect." ~Magda Gerber 5 mai 2014

I found Janet's blog when I had a two-year-old and a six-month-old. I was frustrated at my oldest's rivalry with the youngest, and at my wit's end with his hitting. At the time I practiced attachment parenting, and thought my love and gentleness should have been enough to have loving, gentle children.

Janet's advice and RIE saved my family and me. It not only helped us find our way out of that dilemma, but all of the other parenting pitfalls I hear others running into. Sleep, visits to the doctor, sharing, manners, and so on were no longer something I dreaded. In fact, learning from Janet helped shift my perspective of parenting so I saw my children in a completely different way, and I've learned to have a respectful relationship with them so *nothing* is dreaded.

I'm certainly not perfect as a parent, but RIE and Janet's advice doesn't require perfection. Instead it suggests humanity, respect, and acceptance. If you are looking for a different kind of baby book, that isn't dogmatic and truly can work for anyone, this is it. It will change your life.

I am so excited that Janet Lansbury's practical, gentle, and effective guidance and wisdom is now available in book form. I can't wait to share with friends and colleagues! This book is a collection of 30 of Janet's most popular blog posts, (ones that I often recommend to new parents, and those new to RIE or the concept of respectful parenting, who are wondering where to begin), and they are the ones I find myself returning to again and again to inspire and guide me in my role as a caregiver and teacher, (and, most recently, as a new parent). The book will be available as a paperback and as an audio book soon, and I will be purchasing copies as gifts and to give out in my parenting classes. I read widely and obsessively on the topics of infant toddler development and parenting, and I rarely recommend books as highly as I recommend this one. Janet is a parent and a professional who knows and understands babies and toddlers, and walks her talk. She has tremendous compassion for parents and how hard parenting can be, and she offers unique, practical, and doable guidance that is guaranteed to transform your parenting experience and your relationship with your baby.

This book is loaded with well thought out, valuable caring and parenting suggestions. The approach presented is fine tuned by Janet Lansbury’s experience as mentor to parents and made personal with touching stories about her own children.

Janet is an expert in sensitive observation, the importance of allowing children to experience their own feelings, while learning and growing at their own pace. For me it is especially touching the way she expresses these ideas so true to the way they were taught by my mother, Magda Gerber.

Janet Lansbury is the ultimate voice of wisdom, kindness, and respect when it comes to babies and young children. Often in raising my own daughter, I ask myself "WWJD?" (What would Janet do?) Don't miss this great introduction to RIE parenting from one of its most articulate exponents!
