Babies cry to communicate. In fact, sometimes it's the only way babies can communicate. Coping with crying can be a challenge, especially for people who have little or no experience care for infants. Learning to cope with crying is critical, as infant crying is the number one trigger for shaking a baby. In this course, we will learn about Shaken Baby Syndrome, and about ways to cope with a crying infant. This course is designed to be part of a Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™ curriculum. It covers CDA Subject Area 1, Planning a Safe and Healthy Environment and CDA Subject Area 3: Supporting Children's Social and Emotional Development. This course can also be taken as a stand-alone learning event, or as part of a broader early childhood education curriculum.
