:cry: I was a little shocked when I read of Tracy's passing. Her influence has extended, not only to parents, but to all those who care for children.
I have cuddled babies for the past twenty years and Tracy still managed to teach me a thing or two.
I have recommended Tracy's books to many parents and nannies over the past year, since discovering her program.
My husband would ask, 'How does she know the baby has (colic) - she's only been there for ten minutes?'
After a few weeks of explaining, my answer became, sit back - watch and learn.
Tracy's skills and her ability to share them with sometimes desperate parents, I believe was the key to her success.
I have seen many childcarers/ specialists try to explain to parents how to adjust their behaviour to address a problem.
The majority often made the parents feel like they were doing everything wrong. Tracy never did.
I'd watch the faces of the parents on the show the first few times, looking for guilt or rejection to appear, it never did.
Tracy never made them feel that way.
:wink: She not only holds the title of the Baby Whisperer ~ she also has earnt the title of Parent Whisperer !
Sophie and Sara must be so proud of their Mum.
I'll be thinking of her often , as I settle young babies.
She's still around us, whispering sweet nothings to sleeping babies.
Best Wishes to you all
