The JOY of First Steps

The purpose of THE JOY OF FIRST STEPS teachers guide is to help a parent begin to transfer the responsibility for his or her child’s life from the parent to the child. Toddlers (1 – 3 years of age) are far more capable of doing things for themselves than most parents think. It’s just a matter of teaching them relevant information and skills then motivating them to apply what they’ve learned. This guide is loaded with all kinds of fun, yet educational, activities that parents and caregivers can share with toddlers during the beginning years.
