Sometimes the responsibility of being a parent can be overwhelming, it is normal to be anxious.
Listen to your pēpi – read their cues.
You don’t need to be the perfect parent – everyone will make mistakes.
The most important thing is that you are loving your pēpi and doing your best.
The numbers of words spoken to pēpi per day by their primary caregiver between the ages of 0-1 will have the greatest impact on their development outcomes – so if you are overwhelmed and anxious – just talk to your pēpi, sing and play with your pēpi and you will be making a difference.
