Our daughter turns one years old next month. She has been developing ahead of schedule in many arenas and is a very expressive and affectionate child. Of late, she is able to reach and grab a variety of objects, including those that could be harmful to her (various wires including those connecting to heavy objects she could tip over on herself). While I watch her incessantly, I also want to begin expressing to her that some objects are not to be touched.
Is it realistic to convey this to her or is it more prudent to simply move her/object if she approaches it? So far, I do both while also calmly but firmly saying "no" re the object that's to not be touched.
At what age does one proactively uses words as primary way to bar a child from engaging with any objects that can be of harm to them?
