Your child's second through sixth years are a time of challenge and excitement - and often, frustration- for parents, a time which your child assrts his or her own individuality with growing curiousity and perception, initiative and spontaneity. "The Early Childhood Years" is and invaluable guide to understanding how your child grows and learns, and can help you prepare for and avoid many of the problems inherent in this crucial period of development. In these five years you will see your child learning, testing, exploring, playing, creating and imagining in new and surprisingly sophisticated ways. The cries, too, are new - they may range from illnesses, nightmares and bed-wetting, to speech, learning and discipline problems. Your child will begin to climb stairs, turn somersaults and ride a tricycle, form complete sentences, draw recognizable shapes on paper and develop an enhanced capacity to think and an awareness of social values. By the end of the sixth year, your child will be an accomplished speaker, and enthusiastic playmate and master of his or her own body; your child will be ready to take on the world of people and things in school and beyond.
