Overview

When it comes to safety, the earliest teachable moment is the best teachable moment if this is done in a way that builds understanding and skills instead of creating anxiety or fear.

According to 'MojoMom' author Dr. Amy Tiemann, "Irene van der Zande is the author of the classic parenting guide, '1,2,3...The Toddler Years: A Practical Guide for Parents and Caregivers' which for over 25 years has helped new parents navigate the waters through the all-important first few years of life. Now van der Zande combines her toddler-parenting expertise with her work as the Founder and Executive Director of Kidpower, a leading international organization teaching personal safety to people of all ages, with the creation of the new book 'Earliest Teachable Moment: Personal Safety for Babies, Toddlers and Preschoolers.'"

"What does personal safety look like for very young children? 'Earliest Teachable Moment' gives parents and caregivers information and tools to create emotional safety, boundaries, and positive relationships. Add to that important parent-centered information including 'How to choose safe people to care for your children.'Van der Zande coaches parents on how to teach basic skills to children including 'Checking first to be safe with objects, animals, strangers, and other potential problems.'"
