Webinar: Talking Trauma With Young Children - ZERO TO THREE

Children are never too young to experience trauma and stress, and these difficult feelings can have a big impact on little kids. With ongoing violence in public spaces and media coverage of these events, young children–including infants and toddlers–may be experiencing high levels of anxiety.

Dr. Renee Boynton-Jarrett, MD and Dr. Chandra Ghosh Ippen, PhD, experts on child trauma, have a candid conversation about how adults, whether caregivers, early education professionals, or advocates, can navigate conversations with young children to support the overall well-being of children and of themselves.

01/22/2023

Happy Lunar New Year! From red envelopes, known as hóngbāo, full of lucky money, to eating tteokguk, or rice cake soup, for good luck, this day is culturally significant for many families. Rooted in thousands of years of tradition, Lunar New Year is celebrated in China, South Korea, Taiwan, Vietnam, and many other Asian countries. While many families mark the Year of the Rabbit, a symbol of longevity, peace and prosperity, in 2023, Vietnam celebrates the Year of the Cat.

Celebrate this day with young children by reading books about Lunar New Year written by Asian authors. Sample a variety of traditional foods like dumplings, pineapple cake, steamed square cake, and longevity noodles. Join in the festivities happening in your area. Learn together about the differences in Asian cultures. And most of all, enjoy Lunar New Year!

Toddler Biting: Finding the Right Response - ZERO TO THREE

Toddler biting is a very common behavior, which means there are a lot of concerned parents out there. You are not alone. The good news is that there is a lot that parents and caregivers can do to reduce and, ultimately, eliminate biting.

Children bite in order to cope with a challenge or fulfill a need. For example, your child may be biting to express a strong feeling (like frustration), communicate a need for personal space (maybe another child is standing too close) or to satisfy a need for oral stimulation. Trying your best to understand the underlying cause of the biting will help you develop an effective response.

Trying your best to understand the underlying cause of toddler biting will help you develop an effective response.

Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health - ZERO TO THREE

Despite trending conversations about our emotional well-being, the mental health of our youngest citizens is largely ignored or misunderstood. No other core issues matter if we don’t begin by acknowledging that babies come into the world with a capacity for a rich emotional life and are so much more than passive observers of the world around them.

Infant and early childhood mental health is at the center of every single step we take at ZERO TO THREE. As a baby grows through infancy, toddlerhood and the preschool years, each experience—positive or negative—becomes a building block for their future wellness. Learn more about our work:

Home Mental health is the foundation of early childhood development. Babies come into this world ready and wired to form relationships. From the moment of birth, children are forming connections, developing social responses and learning about themselves and the world around them. Infant and early ch...

100 infant deaths have been linked to the Fisher-Price Rock ’n Play Sleeper. Though recalled and pulled from stores in 2019, inclined sleepers are still being purchased through a large resale market. This week, Fisher-Price reannounced its recall as a reminder not to use the company's sleepers, which have continued to lead to infant fatalities.

Council Post: Supporting Working Parents Means Supporting Invisible Caregivers

"At a time when there’s not enough affordable, accessible child care to go around, invisible caregivers play a critical role in keeping the workforce afloat. Often referred to as family, friends and neighbors (FFN), invisible caregivers provide care for an estimated 60% of American children, making them the most meaningful child care solution for the vast majority of working parents.

It’s the work of invisible caregivers—Grandma, Auntie or the stay-at-home-mom next door—that enables many parents to return to and stay in the workforce. And yet, most of these caregivers are unlicensed and unpaid, making them 'invisible' to the child care economy and leaving the working families who rely on them vulnerable and insecure."

If companies want to attract and retain working parents, they need to support all kinds of working parents—including those who rely on these invisible caregivers.

Eamani Williams is a proud mother of two young children that strives to be the “happy mom” her kids deserve. But she didn’t have the easiest childhood herself. Then a pregnancy interrupted her teen years.

Like many adults, Eamani experienced trauma growing up or what experts like to call “adverse childhood experiences.” And because a mother’s and infant’s mental health are woven together, a trauma can impact her ability to bond with her child, manage parental stress, or be emotionally available. Now, she is committed to breaking the cycle of trauma in her family— and HealthySteps is there to help.

HealthySteps meets parents and families where they are, providing additional support and resources during well-child visits at their pediatric primary care offices to help families reduce day-to-day stressors that could negatively impact babies.

From now until January 1st, all gifts— up to $50,000— will be matched dollar-for-dollar. There’s no better time to give. Please join us today.
