Title - Ages & Stages

 I like being with two-year-olds. I know that parents sometimes tire of children's whining. Some parents don't understand that children are not powerless but, in fact, are doing what they need to do at this age to prepare themselves to grow up successfully and become loving, caring, responsible people. Parents need to provide the structure-that is, the environment, the safety, the security, the rules and rituals, and the love-that will give these children the freedom to grow.
