The Importance of Touch and Gaze

Your child’s first language is touch. It is through nurturing, affectionate touch that your child feels soothed, protected, and loved. You communicate volumes in how you hold and handle your child—and the power of touch continues as your child grows.

• Remember that when you gaze into your child’s eyes, you are promoting the growth of her brain. This gaze of acknowledgement tells her, not with words but with feelings, “I understand you.” Mutual eye contact is one of the most significant bonding interactions between you and your child.
