Our Philosophy

We’re continually researching human development and relationships and like to keep up with the latest scientific insights. We particularly enjoy it when sound scientific research or new understandings of the body’s physiology and biochemistry emphasise the value of love and connection in the early years. We share a lot during our courses. The articles in this Philosophy section provide an overview of science and philosophy, blended with practical advice. Take a browse through.

Some of what you read may reinforce your own beliefs, some of the information may be new and exciting for you, and some may challenge you. We share these in the spirit of acknowledging that there’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ or ‘normal’ family, child or parent – much less any such thing as ‘perfect’ – and we invite you to take what feels right for you and your family, and leave the rest.

Babies Know distilled all the best bits of all the best books I’d read, and more …. all parents deserve this introduction to parenting. JS – mum
