Early parent-child bonding helps children:
HoneyDee Labs creates interactive story apps for children about a little deer engineer exploring science, technology, engineering, art, and math concepts with his forest friends. Adults read them to children, ages 3-5, on smartphones and tablets, while kids play along by touching movable elements.
Little Deer Engineer is a curious little deer who goes on a series of adventures meant to inspire young children to explore nature and their surroundings with discoveries about life and scientific research.
Through engaging stories, Little Deer Engineer supports quality, heartfelt family time. By promoting children's mental, linguistic, and emotional development, Little Deer helps children lay a foundation for them to cultivate strong social, academic, and problem-solving skills.
Little Deer Engineer is storytelling with forest animals exploring science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics (STEAM) concepts in fun and original ways.
Benefits of introducing STEAM concepts to children:
In select stories, children can do simple projects and experiments with Little Deer’s easy-to-follow instructions at the end.
Little Deer Engineer lives in the Land of Willow Trees with his forest friends. He has a whimsical workshop where he likes to examine, research, and build things.

British psychiatrist and psychoanalyst John Bowlby, the founding father of attachment theory, described attachment as an emotional bond that impacts behavior “from the cradle to the grave.” How you bond with caregivers during early childhood affects how you behave in relationships and friendships, how in touch you are with your emotions and how much you will allow yourself to love others on a conscious level.
Whether or not people are born with evil inclinations, a supportive, challenging and nurturing environment can both repress and display certain gene expressions.
