Observe the child during daily activities.
Hold the child in your arms and then tip her backwards so she can look at the world upside down.
The child will enjoy this view and when pulled up again will soon lean backwards to do it again. This indicates the child’s curiosity about perspectives.
Encourage parents to watch the child’s physical cues (facial expression, muscle tightening, body movements, etc.) to determine how the child feels about what is happening. Early childhood educators and parents can also help children discover their world by having them see things from different perspectives, up close, far away, under and on top of, not to mention upside down.
