The Life at 1 Series Includes : Life at 1: New Experiences | Life at 1: Stress and Its Impact | | Life at 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9: A Longitudinal Study in Child Development

The first year of life contains many challenges for children—and many opportunities to predict what kind of life a child will lead. This program introduces a group of 1-year-olds who are part of a large-scale longitudinal study in child development. Closely documenting the daily routines and developmental milestones of the children, the program gauges each subject’s ability to confront new experiences—with surprising results. Shy Haleema does well in a “stranger test” while lively Anastasia cries when separated from her parents. Jara’na’s future happiness may depend on his ability to deal with racism, while tiny Ben, born prematurely, upturns all expectations.
