Babies are amazing, with incredible potential for growth and extraordinary powers of development. Perhaps the most astonishing fact about a baby is that during the first ten months his weight increases by a staggering 3,000 million times. For parents the child brings intense joy. A toddler who is provided with a rich, varied, exciting environment in which he is encouraged to start exploring and who is treated lovingly by parents stands a very good chance of acquiring a sense of self-confident curiosity, creative wonder and active intelligence in later life. The secret is to let natural loving feelings express themselves - a child needs a lot of love and complete trust in the reliability of his protectors to happily flourish.
