I''m a man

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.

"Looky here...."

He pulled the stinger out of my foot.

"It attacked you because you stepped on it."

I Did?

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.

And when my army is complete, I will rule the world! But, for now, I'm going to be happy with this tiny ad:
