Babies are born ready to engage with the world around them. And they need relationships with
their most important teachers - their parents - to help shape the architecture of their developing
brain. These relationships take care, consistency, and above all, time.

Join parents and their babies, practitioners, experts, business leaders, and others for a

discussion on how national paid family and medical leave can help provide this critical time for
parents to bond with their very young children, improving outcomes for the entire family and
benefiting employers, taxpayers, and the economy, now and in the future.
