You wouldn't expect your three year old to mow the front lawn or cook on the stove, so why would you want them playing with toys that may be too old for their emerging minds? Part of parenting means teaching a child to be inquisitive and a self-learner. Providing them with developmental infant toys that are appropriate for their age is critical in teaching them this skill. Magda Gerber and Tom Forrest have developed a philosophy that promotes this healthy form of learning, called Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE). It stresses the importance of a baby's freedom and initiative; allowing the child to develop authentically. One way they encourage this is providing time for uninterrupted play with developmental infant toys. This allows the child to learn on his or her own with the freedom to explore. Developmental infant toys aid in this philosophy in many ways. Let's take a look at some of the other methods RIE encourages:
- The basic trust in a child to be an initiator, explorer and self-learner
- A safe, cognitively challenging and nurturing environment
- Involvement of the child in all activities involving their care, thus allowing the child to become an active participant rather than a passive observer
- Sensitive observation in order to understand their needs
- Consistent, clearly defined limits and expectations to develop discipline
- Most of all, respect of the child to develop authentically
