Fear - Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu


In this episode we cover:

  • 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.
