Doreay Bynum Object permanence is used to describe a child's ability to know that objects continue to exist even though they can no longer be seen or heard. If you have ever played a game of "peek-a-boo" with a very young child, then you probably understand how this works. When an object is hidden from sight, infants under a certain age often become upset that the item has vanished. This is because they are too young to understand that the object continues to exist even though it cannot be seen. I chose this concept because as adults we have all acquired the necessary skill of abstraction that is characteristic of object permanence. And I feel that Understanding the fascinating process of intellectual and emotional development will help us to 'step into our children's shoes so to speak, and to see the world through their eyes and consequently help us connect to their needs. I have seen this through my little nephew because when he was as little as a month old too to months old he was playing with cars and baby dinosaurs etc., and now that he is one year
