How does the world look to a one-year-old? When your child
doesn't have words to explain things to you, how can you begin
to understand how she feels? How do you support and understand your
very young child as his independence increases and he starts to
become a toddler, beginning to learn to dress himself, share toys
and play with other children? Acknowledging the crucial role of
relationships and parenting, Sarah Gustavus Jones offers guidance
and reassurance in this sensitive exploration of the issues central
to your child's developing physical and emotional needs.
