This month’s edition of the Bulletin of the Centre of Excellence For Early Childhood Development focuses on crying behavior of infants at various developmental stages. Entitled "What Is All That Crying About" by Ronald G. Barr, Canada Research Chair, Child and Family Research Institute, Vancouver, B.C., the article also focuses on how caregivers respond to crying and strategies to help parents cope with the frustration it can often evoke. This issue also contains helpful information regarding preventing Shaken Baby Syndrome.
Excerpt from article – "For parents of newborns, the increased and often inconsolable crying of their infants during the first few months of life can be a frustrating and stressful experience. Understanding these inconsolable bouts of crying is key to helping parents cope with the situation and develop appropriate responses, thus promoting the healthy social and emotional development of their children."
