Respectfully Yours

1987 interview of Magda Gerber by Dr. Ron Lally, director of the Program for Infant and Toddler Caregivers (PITC). Respect for infants is the basis of Magda Gerber’s philosophy and is shown in part by trusting them to learn on their own and not expecting them to do what they cannot. Sensitive observation with full attention and no preconceived ideas enables caregivers and parents to learn the baby’s signal early resulting in better communication with the child.
