Claire Verity in conversation

Claire Scott - CS (Continuum Concept Mentor)
Claire Verity - CV (Truby King Mentor)
Dreena Hamilton - DH (Dr Spock Mentor)

CS: It's an anthropological study. They look to their parents for love - to be held, to be bonded with their parents, because that's what they're born to expect.

CV: What, at 2 or 3 weeks old?

CS: At birth...

CV: (shakes her head) Disagree

CS: ...babies want parents to respond to them and when they don't, they realise thier communication doesn't work and they give up.

CV: Maybe at 2 or 3 years old they do, but not at 2 and 3 weeks they don't.


DH: But if you're going to have a baby and then you're going to shut it out of your life for half of its day, what's the point of having it?

CV People pay me (£1000 a day) to put a baby into a routine - that's what I get paid to do. That's what I firmly believe in.
