Overview

The period between twelve and eighteen months places a child on a one-way bridge to the future. Infancy is a thing of the past and toddlerhood is straight ahead. A baby still? Not really, but neither is he a toddler and that is the key to understanding this phase of growth. This is a period of great of exchange: baby food is exchanged for table food; the highchair for booster seat; finger feeding replaced with spoon; babbling sounds transition to speaking, the first unsteady steps are conquered by strides of confidence, and the list goes on. Moving forward at a lighting pace, pretoddlers are driven towards a new level of independence, equipped with a mind of their own. Whether a parent is ready or not, a toddler's natural inclination and challenge of 'I do myself' will become increasingly apparent, not to mention frustrating. The drive toward independence is very strong yet, unpredictable. He is always in motion and not easily restrained, directed or controlled, but he needs to be! Boundaries will be tested, rules understood as suggestions, and curiosity will become a force to reckon with. How will a parent meet the unfolding challenges? The answer begins with understanding the various growth transitions of the one-hundred and eighty days linking babyhood with toddlerhood.

    Captured chapter two

    While l was out l had flashbacks. Asking my mother if i could go out by myself. She said no. I went to my room and asked Sophie if she wanted to go. When she said no i started complaining untill she said yes. And we sneaked out the back door leaving a note. I always loved walking but when we were walking a big black van was driving behind us slowly. I nudged Sophie wen the van stopped and two guys stepped out thats when we started running and they caught us.<p>

    I awoke with a start when the van hit a pothole. As a tried to sit up l heard a "she woke up already" and a "she was for a while"<br>
    I realized i was restrained and struggled. I tried to scream but realized i was gagged. The guys heard me and one made his way to me with a knife in his hands and held it to my throat. "Hang in there pumpkin stay still unless you want this dagger in you." He cooed and watched as l stoped and he smiled.<br>
    "Thats my girl now stay that way." He said<br>
    He then went to the back seat. I quietly lay there tears brimming my eyes. If only l had listens to mother if only l noticed the van erlier if only t haddent brung Sophie along. I kept thinking about 'if onlys' as it jumbled around in my head and suddenly the van stopped<p>

    (Sorry again if its so short again charecter applications accepted next chapter will either be tomarrow or later today leave coments please thanks i will answer questions in the next post)
