The table below includes all the parenting books on child development I’ve reviewed so far. The way in which children’s minds develop is fascinating to me. How something can be so obvious to my 5 year old and yet completely beyond my 3 year old’s grasp is astonishing. The way my 10 month old is so obviously starting to understand individual words amazes me.
I wish I had more free time to explore this topic as I can’t think of anything more interesting than how children grow and learn all the things that they will eventually understand. However, as a parent of three small children, this topic does not have the sense of immediacy that some of the other topics have. (Like, how do I get my two kids to stop fighting over who gets to do what first?) As my kids get older and less dependent of me for moment to moment needs, I’m hoping to explore this topic more.
