Oneness and Separetness

Great Book. Picture 14Closely observed and beautifully written, Oneness and Separetness is a study of the inner emotions and experiences of a child’s earliest life. Louise Kaplan explores the journey each baby makes from oneness with his mother to a “secound birth” as a unique psychological being who begins to comprehend the difference between “I” and “You”, “mine” and “yours”.

Baking bread with your child

With children you can do lovely things such as ‘baking bread’

It’s very simple and a lot of fun.For children under three year it is best when all the ingredients are pre-measured and put in little plastic beakers. It facilitates the pouring into the larger bowl. With older children, you can measure with them.

Ideal is to have all prepared on a little table, so any action the child will do is easy for them.

The following ingredients are needed:

  • 1 kg flour (i.e. whole grain)
  • 130 ml of warm water
  • One cube of yeast
  • One teaspoon of salt
  • One tablespoonful of sugar
  • Two tablespoonful of oil (i.e. sunflower oil)

And that’s how it’s done:

Ingredients: flour, oil, yeast, salt, sugar, warm water


All ingredients are purred into a large bowl.
