Serve and return not just for Bianca. A masterclass below!

Updated: Sep 17, 2019



Watching tennis last week reminded me of serve and return strategy that builds healthy relationships.

The child “serves” by reaching out – eye contact, gestures, babbling, touch The caregiver “returns” by reacting – answering, playing peekaboo, playing with a toy.

These exchanges form the building blocks of children’s early brain development – this is how they learn how to control their emotions, to cope with stress and to enjoy being with others.

Screen time, both theirs and ours, can interfere with these interactions; both child and caregiver lose the opportunity for developing strong relationships as well as strong skills. Let’s pay attention to those serves…. Watch this father give us a master class
