The healthy infant who since birth has had harmonious relationships with those around finds pleasure in autonomous and independent activities. This film is based on the research of Anna Tardos and deals with a somewhat new subject, that is to say the different types of attentiveness which an infant can demonstrate under favourable circumstances.
During long play sequences, the different types of attentiveness form a self-regulated system. They indicate a healthy equilibrium and promote healthy development. These lengthy exercises are of great value for learning processes and cognitive development, as well as affective development.

This film together with Paying Attention to Each Other: Infant and Adult during the Bath deals with infants 9 to 12 months. They are primarily intended for professionals but in certain cases may be used with parents.
Although made some years ago the issues raised are still current.
