Parenting, Children and Teens
Imagine that you are 8 months old. You try to talk, but no one seems to understand your language. You try to walk, but you’re not quite sure how to do it yet. You reach out to touch things that are shiny, soft, hard, smooth or sticky but everyone tells you “NO-NO — DON’T TOUCH.” How would you feel? A little frustrated, you can bet! Well, that’s how your baby feels at this age. He is very curious and wants to find out about all the fascinating things that surround him.
