    Are you all grown up?

    Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding about ourselves.
    ~Carl Jung, psychologist and theorist; student of Sigmund Freud

    Parents of babies spend the first two years of their child’s life getting their baby to walk and talk. However, they spend the rest of their life trying to get their child to be quiet! When a baby speaks, it is time for that baby to speak. When a baby walks, it is time for that baby to walk. The important part is that the baby walk or talk sometime around the average age.

    In this lesson, you will learn when the average age developmental are reached. You will also learn about cognitive, moral, and social development according to three theorists.

    Developmental: The process of being in development.

    Milestones: A significant point in development.
