As I explore all of the things around me, I’m going to start trying new things and doing things that might be unsafe for me, another person, a pet, or an object. It’s ok to tell me no when I do something that I’m not supposed to do – but, remember, I’m only doing these things because I’m curious about my world. Be firm but kind when you tell me what I can and can’t do. Then, show me what I can do. I may not like this – in fact, I might cry or even scream – but just be patient. The calmer you stay, the easier it is for me to learn the things you teach me.
