WGBH Radio News: How One Home Visitor Teaches the Boston Basics
Research shows that babies need to feel emotionally secure. It’s important for developing mental control and self-regulation, so called “executive functioning.”

Dear Partners and Friends,

The Boston Basics team is excited to share the story on the Basics that aired on Tuesday 4/17 on WGBH Radio News. Go to 89.7 online to listen to this short piece (3:34).
 
Reporter Bianca Vasquez Toness recorded the Basics being used during a home visit by Alex DaSilva, home based specialist at The Dimock Center, and interviewed Basics founder Ron Ferguson* on the importance of "Maximize Love, Manage Stress,” the first of the Basics. He points out that you can’t spoil a child by holding her too much; warmth and responsiveness helps babies to feel emotionally secure and gives them the confidence to learn.
 
A shout-out of appreciation goes to our partners The Dimock Center and WGBH for helping to make this interview possible.   
 
We hope you enjoy the story. Thanks for continuing to help us spread the word about the Basics and the critical need to share these practices with parents in Boston and beyond.
 
*Faculty Director, Achievement Gap Initiative, at Harvard University

Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
