I figured that was about what was meant. I wonder: does that mean that oral
languaging is the key? What about my one year old who loved to wander. She
was "voting with her feet" literally, insofar as her preferences were
concerned, and we almost always let her roam, simply watching from afar (or
"aclose"). But she wasn't asking for that supervision. Were we wrong in
providing it?

Curiously yours,
