"We have a huge crisis in America," says Allen. "Americans are becoming more detached from one another than ever before in history." Now, in this beautiful country of wealth, mothers with newborn babies are being discharged from the hospital within hours of delivery. They are sent home with a new baby, and no instruction manual. When they won't go to sleep, they're told not to pick them up, and just let them cry it out. They'll learn to go to sleep on their own. What? They're being told the solution to baby's sleeping problem, is to reject them. Then still, everyone wonders why there are so many aggressive issues in this society.
Historically, nature has told parents to pick up their babies and comfort them. In other cultures, which may not surpass America in terms of economic means, far surpass us in caring for their children. Yes, America, it's time to start making changes now in order to prevent future problems. America's children are growing up rejected.
"Children are our greatest gift, and should be treated with extraordinary care!" continues Allen. "How do you show children that they are loved and supported, rather than rejected?" Start when they are infants. With the backing of modern science, research has proven the benefits of massage for infants and children are overwhelming. Infant massage relaxes and soothes, deepens bonding and attachment between parent and child, improves communication, contributes to an infant's healthy development and helps babies sleep better.
