I will be working mostly with infants and toddlers (my preferred age range because at this age they are pretty much guaranteed to beopen-minded, and I do like people who have open minds:) ). Of course at the same time as I am providing positive interaction with them and helping them with developmental stages like trust in their caregivers and growing trust in themselves I will be constantly doing practical things like diaper changes, potty
