Transcription:

And it is basically how we are with the child, how we are with the baby, how responsive we are, how we tell him throughout the day, by our simple interactions in the feeding, or the diaper change, or the bathing, or the putting to sleep, telling him, "You are important to me." And the baby receives this message throughout every day of his life for the first two years of life. He is thinking, "Wow, I really must matter because this person is giving me everything that I need. I matter to this person." And you are giving that baby that message. "You are important to me." And this directly correlated to the baby's developmental self-esteem.
