In Chapter 8, Dr. Ross Greene focuses on understanding when children try to meet expectations, they will encounter the different difficulties at different times (p.111). In infancy, the baby will not use words to convey their ideas. Feeding, sleeping, self-soothing, and development of social abilities are the main expectations.
