Your Child at Play
Two to Three Years : Growing Up, Language, and the ImaginationBook - 1998
A guide to developmentally appropriate play offers activities for parents and children to share as well as insight into a two-year-old's world
Two year olds progress at such a rapid rate that they often leave their families dazzled and a bit confused. This easy-to-read, parent-friendly book, illustrated with over 130 photographs of real children at play, provides insight into how two year olds see themselves; how they get along with others; and how they learn language. Here are hundreds of innovative ideas to help your child in all these efforts as well as suggestions for dealing with potential problems. Some of the subjects covered include:
• self-definition • resolving conflicts • living with siblings • playing with friends • listening, speaking, and communicating • imaginative play • visual and physical exploration
A range of activities for encouraging mental, physical, and social development in children. The material is organized into chapters covering everyday routines, conflict and authority, developing a sense of self, making friends, literacy, and other topics.
