  • Too Much

    At Information Children we frequently hear
    from parents who are wistful for the day when
    their child can talk, or their child can walk,
    or from parents who can’t wait for the day
    when their child is toilet-trained or when
    their child can read to themself.
    Raising a young family today can be busy.

  • Research on Sharing

    Although preschoolers can appreciate
    sharing as a social norm, they don’t
    really embrace the principle until they’re
    at least 7, according to the study,
    published in the journal PLOS One.
