Hi does anyone practice a RIE parenting approach in Hackney or near Hackney?
I have been practicing that with my 4 month old daughter and I'm wondering if there is more parents who agree with this approach?
Would love to hear your experience.
Never heard of it but just looked it up and it seems interesting. Is there any data or studies behind the approach? Some of the stand back and watching worries me slightly though as studies show children exposed to less language are at a greater risk of developing language delays.
Yes the RIE approach has been created by Magda Gerber which is based on paediatrician Emmi Pickler studies.

I have been using respectful parenting on my daughter ( nearly 5 month) for about 2 month and find it works very well.
I do not agree with absolutely everything, but I use at least 85%
Janet Lansbury is a latest advocate for rie and she got blog on hers name.
I've red one of hers book and now reading another.
Also you may misunderstood that stand back and watch approach . They mean if baby play on it own do not disturb him, because he may make some discoveries for him self. They invite you observe the child so you can better understand his needs.
Rie is asking you to talk to your baby all the time, but with normal authentic voice.
