Monday 8th Oct 2018 - 7:30pm-9:00pm
Events Hall, Wigram Air-force Museum - Christchurch
“The First 1000 Days of life will shape what kind of grown-up your child will turn into. It’s not about genes, or alphabets, or numbers or colours, it’s about love and interaction. The more love and interaction your baby experiences in their first 1000 days of life, the more developed their brain will be. Drown those toddlers in love, let them think for themselves and don’t stress about being a parent. Your love grows your baby’s brain.” – Nathan Wallis

If nothing else, you will walk away understanding how yours and your baby’s brain work, so you know that a lot of it is normal development and not in fact your fault – Phew!
