Respecting children in their own right as individual 'persons' improves their care and their well-being. Better educational progress by each child is achieved. This in turn improves the economic potential for the nation. Each child has physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual needs. Early attunement between the parent and the child is crucial and an approach that integrates all the elements that affect the child as a person has been found to be effective in promoting positive health outcomes.
