  1. What changes take place (aside from physical growth and motor control) in a child between infancy and age four? Does he or she learn to talk? Ask questions? Understand more of the world around him/her, like the difference between summer and winter? What is the child learning? Does he/she now know what a spoon is for and how to use it?

  2. The first example is Nettie behavior at public place, When Nettie was younger she not able to sit still or stay quiet while being at a restaurant. As Nettie got older her behavior in restaurants improve. Since Nettie is now older she knows what type of behavior that my partner and I expect of her. As she got older her cognitive abilities are more develop it gives Nettie a better understand of the rules she needs to follow. The second change of Nettie behavior since infancy is social interaction with others. In the begin of Nettie life she was very shy around other people. She often would prefer me and my partner when around others. As soon Nettie start preschool she was comfortable with others in her classroom. Since starting preschool Nettie has made one or two friends and usually played cooperatively with them.
