Regarding prenatal/infant early childhood care I would suggest you do what comes natural.
I'd like to advise about young walking talking....development.
That was particularly great when I was say about 1-5.
And what made it great was humor and honesty.
When I stepped on a bee and it stung my foot and I was writhing in pain, my dad came over grabbed my foot, saw the stinger and made me look at it:
"Look here son"
You killed this bee. He found the bee too.
He pulled the stinger out of my foot.
"It attacked you because you stepped on it."
Yeah and you killed it.
You pulled it's butt off.
And it's dead.
This sounds militant and anti-bee.
But I remembered that getting stung by a bee wasn't' the bee's fault.
I stepped on it.
My pain wasn't as bad as the bee dying,
and My dad knew I was in pain and taught me the right way. We both laughed. Not as animosity towards the bee, but the absurdity of the lesson.
