Congratulations, you have now reached the next big step in the development of your child's future. Hopefully you have created the sold foundation for which your child can grow and mature. Now you must work on building the walls and roof of their world. Encourage them to explore the world both physically and intellectually. Give them room to grow and have fun in life. Give them cover and support for the many trials and tribulations that this stage will provide. Provide windows of light so they can learn and be enlightened.

Tips and Advice
1. Read to them and with them.
2. Make time to talk to them, walk with them, play with them, learn with them, cry and laugh with them.
3. Be their parent not their friend, they have plenty of friends, what they need is to know you are there and love them.
4. Be fair and just in punishment. Let the punishment meet the level of what they have done.
5. Have patience, after all they are only children who are trying to understand the world around them.
6. Never underestimate the power of praise. When they do something that is worthwhile, let them know how proud you are with what they did.
