Shopping trip – independence and boundariesIn this clip, two year old Ava goes to the grocery shop. Mum has to work out a balance between allowing her independence and keeping her safe.
Good for looking at:
- Secure attachment relationships
- Emotional development
- Emerging independence
- Setting boundaries
- How the child asserts her emerging independence during a trip to the shops. (Look out for non-verbal and body language as well as spoken language)
- How the parent reacts?
- In what ways does the parent support the child’s learning?
