3 - 5yrs Clinic
For the first few years of your child's life you are an indispensable teacher. The more you talk to your child, play with them and involve them in your world, the more they'll learn.
But at the age of 3, they will begin to start thinking for themselves; what to play with, who to play with, and how to react when some child he doesn't know snatches his favourite toy.
This period for a young child centres around learning those all important social skills: sharing, caring, table manners, saying please and thank you, making friends and having fun learning new activities. But it's also a time for bigger challenges; maybe starting preschool or nursery, or something unimaginable - like welcoming a new sibling into the family. This stage of parenting has so many rewards - and this section will help you enjoy each milestone as and when it happens.

Dea's subsequent article in The Guardian spurred hundreds of families to write in with similar experiences. A few months later, the Guardian launched its Kids in Museums Campaign along with a 20-point Manifesto.
