I believe the first 2,000 days are critically important because we all know about the brain science now that says there is so much going on in an infant’s brain those first 2,000 days that we can’t do over. They are learning – learning how to trust in other humans, how to love, and how to be in this world. And that all comes from human interaction, which comes from reading to our children…the foundation that is laid in the first 2,000 days will impact will set up everything that happens to that child for the rest of their life.”
