Parenting and Family

The first two years of a child’s life have a major influence on its health and well-being as an adult. Key body system, such as the immune system ---as well as the brain ---are still in full development mode. As a parent, you want to nourish this development, providing a supportive environment that keeps it moving in a positive direction.

Even after a child passes the age of two, parents continue to be pivotal in their child’s progression through life.
