The crisis of the first year of life
The crisis of the first year. It sounds scary, does not it? And somehow in an adult way. He is so small that he can not have a crisis. And the very word crisis is negative.
Just yesterday he was just an angelic character, and what happened today? There have come great changes in the life of the baby, and parents too. In the life of all people there are various stages, in the life of small people they are also. There are crisis stages.
The crisis of one year, three years, seven years, adolescence … a lot. The concept of a crisis should not be taken as something negative. The crisis implies an important stage, the development of the individual, an inalienable development process. In the process of passing through difficulties, development takes place directly. Namely, the crisis of the first year is the initial step to independence.
In the interval from nine to eighteen months, the kids are in a crisis of one year.
Girls and boys become restless and capricious, require independence, they can break sleep and mood, they can refuse to do what was previously done with pleasure (walking, eating with a spoon, etc.).
