Adult-child interaction is the super-tool for the development of concepts.
As always, it boils down to the importance of Adult-child interactions as the super tool in the development of thought and language (to borrow Vygotsky's phrase). That interaction, I might add, doesn't include, unfortunately, watching the multitude of mindless sitcoms and cartoons on Television.
Come to think of it, my wife always uses the pet phrase "sitcom" when she calls me.
I always thought is was because I used to sit calmly (actually, she used the term comatose) in front of the TV for hours before our child was born, but I may have another pseudo concept to deal with here.
In the meantime, I would like to explore how these concepts develop as the child explores his/her environment from birth to senescence. That is the topic of the next lesson.
