The first five years
When will my baby first smile?
How much of my two-year-old’s speech should I be able to understand?
When will my child know how to ‘play nicely’? Or tie shoelaces? Or catch a ball? a Young children develop at a dizzying rate, constantly reaching new milestones. Of course, each child is different but many parents will want to know if their baby or toddler is developing as expected. Written by a practicing GP, The First Five Years provides clear guidelines for what to expect during each stage of this precious time in your child’s life. It shows how children learn through play, and provides practical, imaginative tips on dealing with the challenges small children can bring.
