Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop
Presented by: Tracey Kretzer, M.S.
Encourage your child care center and/or babysitter to sign with your baby or toddler in just seconds a day and increase your child's IQ, ability to communicate, and confict resolution skills! Here a 14 month-old child (behind teacher) signs "BALL" and the toddler gives him the ball!! No crying, no whining, no grabbing, or interrupting the teacher!
The National Institute of Health (NIH)
showed that babies & toddlers who were signed to as children had an average of
12 point higher IQ by age 8!

Time Out vs.
a Safe Place™
Many children (and adults too) know what TO DO, but struggle with how to do it during upset moments. Time Out, depending on how it is used, may be losing the opportunity to teach skills IN the very moment most conducive to learning. If you use Time Out, I challenge you to also introduce a Safe Place™, where children can go to calm. Fill your area with comfy pillows or a bean bag chair (that hugs you), family pictures, teddy bears, squishy balls, etc.
Children go themselves, or are invited (not sent) by a teacher or their peers. Very often families and teachers see a decrease in their use of Time Out and some even stop using it all together!
A baby's Safe Place™ is in your arms. Toddlers and preschoolers also need your lap too, but benefit from a Safe Place or portable Safe Place items box. Young children are concrete learners. Once your child reaches 10-12, their Safe Place (as is yours) is internalized. Think of how calming it is to visualize beaches, mountains, waterfalls, etc.
Sung to the tune of "Rock-a-bye Baby" but with no fear of falls, only calming:
Snuggle up children,
In your Safe Place,
You can go there,
To have your own space,
When you feel scared,
And want to feel loved,
Just cuddle yourself,
And your bear with a hUg!
