Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the ongoing childhood development of Ricky. During his toddlerhood, Ricky had much to adjust to, including the birth of his younger brother a month after his birthday, and the transfer of residence and school. At age four, he continued to display his thoughts about language, mind, and reality with much openness. He became more in touch with reality and the wider world. However, despite his attention to truth, he still easily engaged in fantasy.
