Watch Me Grow: I'm One: Every Parent's Guide to the Enchanting 12- to 24-Month-Old
Being one(twelve to twenty-four months old) is a time of explosive growth for babies. Their brains are growing from one-quarters of adult size by two years of age. They are ready to achieve exciting milestones in language and emotional development, and new skills abound as they learn to walk, share ( though not much), and comminicate with loved ones. This year offers a thrilling challenge for babies and parents alike.
Throughout this book, Maureen O'Brian, Ph.D., an expert in child development and former director of the Brazelton Touchpoints Center at Boston's Children's Hospital, describes this remarkable journey in rich detail. We watch "and hear" these one-year-olds realize their separateness from others, understand that objects are different from people, and begin to know that when Mom leaves the room, she has not disappeared forever. The warm, knowledgeable, and lively style of the Watch Me Grow series reflects O'Brien's vast experience as a scientist, teacher, and mother.
