Early childhood development is a time of both immense opportunity and great vulnerability. Many children are unable to reach their full potential due to poor environmental conditions. Their body awareness is fundamental to their daily lives and is usually prioritized over social-emotional development, emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and other skills. Understanding how to foster this body awareness is critical to your child's general health and way of life. This awareness can result in children that have a clear, loving connection to their body and knowing, loving, and trusting themselves!

“If you remain curious as a witness and observer to your child's experience versus ‘Oh, I think there's something wrong and we need to fix that.’ Those are two very different energies and children immensely feel that.” – Alison Elsberry
“Honor each individual's perspective of where they might be coming from. Offer a different way of looking at something and don’t make it about right or wrong.” – Alison Elsberry
“We really need to look at how we can help the future generations coming in to stay connected with their bodies and the source of who they are.” – Alison Elsberry
You need to be able to know your priorities and approach when dealing with children because your decisions will affect them throughout their lives.
Be more open-minded if you want other people to open their minds to you as well.
It is important for everyone to have knowledge of their roots. We should all make sure that future generations are aware of it.
