Right from the Start, launched more than 20 years ago by George Alagiah and Kate Adie, is a charity that is working to help parents, wherever they are in the world, be the best parents they can be.
As George Alagiah says:
“There is a good way to be a parent, a good way to bring up children, [and] a good way to enjoy and learn from children … What ‘Right from the Start’ is striving to do is to be part of that goodness.”
Babies, toddlers, and young children are a joy – most of the time. But there are times in the ‘early years’ when parenting seems to be the hardest ‘job’ in the world… as well as the loneliest.
Kate Adie says:
“We are nervous of common sense because everything around us has become more specialised and less personal and human. ‘Right from the Start’ touches on what is common to us all: basic humanity in this very, very pressurised world.”
The first Right from the Start e-book – Sound Sleep: calming and helping your baby or child to sleep – can still be downloaded FREE as an eBook here until the new, enriched and updated edition is published in paperback and eBook early 2020.
