We've been seeing Dr. Naylor for 5+ years and would love to see him asking more questions about my children's development. Although we may be that family that comes in occasionally with a sick kiddo and to every WCE with no major health issues (are always told our kiddos are perfect), I'd love to see more of a PFR (promoting first relationships) framework within the providers we see and their interactions with us. Even if our kids are healthy and I have no concerns, it feels great to know my provider cares enough to check in how my child is developing new skills. Would love if he elaborated on this. EG. Asking what new things my infant is doing, commenting on social/emotional cues, etc. We love ROR (Reach Out and Read) and didn't receive it at our 2yo WCE- our kids really look forward to the new book and sad we didn't get it this time around. If ROR ends at age 2 it would be great to be informed. Proactive questions like what's going well, what is not going well (potty training, naps, sleeping in own bed) are all things I would love to talk about and go into depth without having to bring up. When a provider inquires, the relationship grows.

My husband and I sincerely value the direction and advice Dr Naylor has (always) provided. He takes time to answer our questions. He is highly trusted and esteemed (in our home).
