A. The inclination of a child
progressing from infancy to age
5 is to explore his environment.
This is g natural tendency. Kx-
ploration involves seeing,
reaching, and tasting. Children

beginnings — mother’s breast,

achieve a gratification from
placing things in their mouths.

Q. Can you give me some in-

A. Several oompanes are ma-

with locking devices. These are
both for the sliding-door, as
well as swinging-door, types.
If you are buildng or remodel-
ing a home, you should specify
this type of installation for your

locks; these chests are designed
to be inserted into conventional
