1.      making the child feel important and loved
2.      responding to the child’s cues and clues
3..      accepting the child for who he or she is but expecting success
4.      promoting strong values

5.      using constructive discipline
6.      providing routines and rituals

I like this.....

"The question today is not whether early experience matters, but rather how early experiences shape individual development and contribute to children's continued movement along positive pathways."

Shonkoff & Phillips, 2000
