This is not to alarm parents, you do not have to be perfect, quite the opposite. Margaret Mahler coined the term 'good-enough mothering' which means that infants need a degree of imperfection in their early lives because the world they are growing into is not perfect. As long as the parents are reasonably attuned to the needs of the infant and balance that with other factors in the infants early years the child will grow into a well-balanced person.
Clarissa has a passion for working with parents because children are the most important beings on the planet. As a mother of five boys (now all at high school) Clarissa knows the perils, pride, pitfalls and presciousness of our little people and the massive importance of getting it right in the early years. Clarissa has additional training in perinatal psychology and chooses to now focus primarily on working with mothers, fathers and infants in the early formative years.
