Rie Parenting- It’s About Understanding Your Babies’ Experiences
You may have heard of RIE or Rie parenting as a method of understanding your babies experiences in a very positive way. It does however as a ‘mindset’ take a little bit of getting used to. Look at it as a sort of ‘back to basics’ approach to being a parent , let go of all your preconcieved ideas and embrace RIE parenting with an open mind.
You may have heard that RIE parenting is some sort of ‘celebrity craze’ which is nonsense by the way. It is tru that some fairly high profile individuals in tinseltown have publicised RIE because they practice its formula and teaching BUT RIE is well know to attract creative people and parents as it encourages breaking down the barriers of conventional parenthood. Proponents include Toby McGuire, Helen Hunt, Jamie Lee Curtis.

RIE parenting is about giving your child the right amount of attention and the right type of attention. We have written very recently on the tricky topic of recognising under RIE that you can say ‘NO’ to your baby or toddler. That post would be well worth a look at.
RIE encourages you to have less distraction in yoru home life to forge a meaningful and healthy relationship with your baby. Less using the phone and computer and MORE time to attend top your baby. The idea of errand running with your little one is not the RIE way as the time you spend together should be ‘natural’ and ‘experience’ intensive not a diluted form of togetherness.
