I just took an Infant Development class and on our last day our professor talked about Robert R. McCormick Foundation's  List of the top ten things every child needs. I love it and think it is so true. I hope every parent out there makes all of these things a priority in their child's life.
Every child needs...
10.  To Read
9.     To Hear/Experience Music
8.     To Play
7.    Someone to Talk With (communication)  
6.    Quality Care/Nurturing (education)
5.    Positive Self-Esteem
4.    A Safe/Healthy Environment
3.    A Stable Relationship
2.    Appropriate/Nurturing Touch
1.    Human Interaction
I also love this message. 

Be crazy about your child.
