Now that Fleur is super confident in crawling and standing and the law of gravity and navigation, she wants to explore. Well, to play with more causation. She is not satisfied with the rules she knows.
Like the scientist toddlers are, she has to try it again and again to see when and how the laws hold up. Will this thing behave the same? Will this person (me) allow her to taste the thing? Can she get to the thing and taste it before the parent stops her?
I didn’t realize how much of parenting is predicting what the child is going to do and shape the environment for a positive experience.
