“Child’s Play” is a series of articles on the kinds of play, how play develops, and how it is necessary for a child’s health (psychological as well as physical).
- First Puzzles for a Child under Two Years. This article gives some history of how Amie (and any other child) approached jig saw puzzles and fit-in puzzles at age 16-18 months.
- Young Children and Television: Where does the mind go when the eyes watch tv? This article was written in response to the finding (by Zimmermann et.al.) that 90% of 2-year-olds watch 1.5 hours of television daily.
- Be sure to check out the blog entry on Amie’s puzzling skills at 24 months.
