So, you have the seven chakras and you have you know, the from bottom up the root chakra that deals with issues of safety and security. Well, how does that apply to our children and how can we teach them those types of truths? And you have this the sacrum chakra, which deals with one-on-one relationships, and how to honor that and who is the who are the first one on one relationship that the child has? It's their parents, correct? So, so important to have that is such a stable and safe first relationship. The third chakra we're talking about the solar plexus and that has everything to do with self-worth and self-esteem and identity. And think about how difficult that is for our children these days, how difficult it is with social media, and how we've just heard reports on how young adolescent girls are committing suicide at an alarming rate.

Even your even your pediatrician did not take courses in parenting. So, the best person to know your individual child is you. And the way you do that is by seeing the naked truth of your child. Try not to see your child as a reflection of you reflection of your spouse, this child had a past that goes way, way before this child was even, you know your own child.

It's been absolutely proven that close skin to skin contact with your child, it has physiological benefits. Now this is not just emotional or mental benefits. This is true physiological benefits for every body system. So, we're talking digestive system, we're talking cardio respiratory system, we're talking about cardiovascular system, we're talking about neurological systems, immune systems, you name it, the entire body of the baby, the infant, when it is in close proximity, or skin to skin with the caregiver, it helps to regulate and organize all of these systems to an optimal functioning.
