Nelson Mandela’s death has provoked a flood of his many quotes to be repeated and remembered with love and compassion. This quote is one of my favourites, which I hope the world really looks at, and takes way more seriously than it has been in the past. Education is the key to many of the world’s problems, especially poverty, which Mandela recognised and promoted well.
Our very own Julia Gillard, recognises and has been focused on the importance of education for a long time. In opposition through to her Prime Minister stint, her unrelenting message has been to draw attention to education policy. It’s a great pity the media didn’t investigate and explore these real issues with the same enthusiasm they applied to Canberra gossip!
There are many educators, politicians, teachers who understand that education is vital to our social, emotional and physical well being. What is lacking is a real understanding of where and when this education should begin. Most ‘experts’ in the field would agree that it’s way too late to leave educating until a child starts school, at around the age of 5yrs., most would agree that it’s too late to start at 3yrs or 2yrs. so when should we begin educating our children? What is the ‘ideal’ age to start. There has been much debate around this with many experts and policy makers disagreeing. We know that these decisions are reduced to the bottom line of ‘funding’. Governments do not want to pour more money into child care training/education, or school funding. What has happened to Gonski?? How can a Government not follow through with what took a huge amount of resources, money and research to develop?
Education of our children should begin in utero!
David Chamberlain, PhD, psychologist, scholar, international lecturer and author, in his new book “windows to the womb’ states “prenates are learning constantly from their experiences in utero, regardless of the amount of brain matter they have at the time. The emerging view of dynamic, responsive life in utero contrasts sharply with the failed view of foetal passivity and unconsciousness, calling for a redefinition of who babies are and what they can know and do.”
This book is an eloquent guide to the first nine months of life. We now understand that fetuses are sentient and aware beings. In this new climate of appreciation for foetal behaviour, sensitivity and intelligence, David Chamberlain presents new information illuminating the transformative journedy each one of us must undergo in the womb, including discoveies in embryonic and foetal research that support his own findings on the impact of the mother’s emotional and physical state during pregnancy. He emphasises the importance of prenatal parenting, which calls for “no-wait” bonding, long before birth and gives advice on the steps that pregnant parents can take to ensure the most nurturing start in life for their children.
