[Xmca-l] Re: The ideal head



The one at 2-2.5 is easy - "terrible twos"? :-)
Is this just a myth though?

More seriously, there do appear to developmental milestones however:
Use of and ambivalence in Yes / No?

 Martin,
 Vygotsky's Problem of Age is a difficult
 essay. I wonder if you could say a
 bit more
 about the crisis at 6 (7,8?) years and the one at 12 years?
 The
 others are fairly self explanatory but
 those two are a bit more
 complicated. Among
 other things, it isn't clear what is different about
 the
 crisis at 2.5 and the crisis at 6.
