When to start simple puzzles with babies?

When to start simple puzzles with babies?

Younger children might be able to do them and then some 2 year olds might have frustration with them. So try them and if they are too frustrating, then wait about 6 months and try again. ...Read more

At what age does a child begin or should a child start to understand right from wrong? At some age they are old enough to know better bad from good.

From 5-10 yrs. kids think of what's right & fair as immutable, adult-made rules. From 10-12 yrs., children "get" that what's " right" may change with the situation. ...Read more
