About Visible CHILD
About Visible CHILD
We are a research, training, parent support, and educational consulting service that serves families and the organizations and institutions with whom families interact every day. We work with children, parents, child care centers, schools, social service agencies, and other organizations, always with a focus on the best outcomes for children and families. We are deeply committed to a lens of respect and empathy for children, grounded in knowledge of child development.
We believe that all children deserve respect as full human beings, and that caring for them requires tremendous dedication and attention, not to mention sacrifice. We believe that, from birth, children tell us who they are as individuals, and how best to care for and advocate for them, if only we can develop the skill to observe and listen closely.
We all hear so frequently, “Wow, I wish babies came with instructions!” or “Well, babies don’t come with directions, you know.” We believe they DO come with instructions–they are born with their own instruction book, their own parenting guide. Our task as parents is to figure out how to read it, or better yet, how to hear them when they “read it to us” through their behavior and communication at every stage of development. At Visible Child, we help parents and professionals learn the skills that enable that “reading” and “listening”, including observation, attunement, understanding development, and more.
We hold to the somewhat worn adage “It takes a village to raise a child.” As such, we believe that children do not “belong” only to their parents or other adults, but rather that it is in all of our interest to support and protect all children and families in our communities. We have to help one another, both individually and at the level of public policy.
