Last week I shared with you what is happening developmentally in the Social-Emotional domain of babies from birth to age 8 months. Today we’ll continue that journey.
As a reminder, Social refers to how the child interacts with others and the learning of social skills. Emotional refers to how they express their emotions.
From between 8 months to 14 months, babies start to initiate social interaction by looking at the engage the parents, or children who are nearby.
Often this is the age when separation anxiety is the highest. Even though it can be a challenge for the parents it is a normal developmental stage.
