    • Persistence in the Second Plane

      Children in the First Plane of development are learning how to push through struggles, how to try again and again and again, often motivated by an internal drive toward their own independence and mastery. Children in the Second Plane are typically already independent in their daily needs. Finally, we know, too, that it's often going to be bumpy in the Second Plane.

    • Aggression in the Second Plane

      If we think of the First Plane of development as a time when the child is building their cognitive filing cabinets, classifying and categorizing the world and relationships within it, the Second Plane of development is when those files get filled with as much information as the child has access to. The same is true for preventing or responding to children's aggression in the Second Plane. While children's aggressive behavior in the First Plane is often a result of a developmentally predictable lack of self-restraint and lack of language, children's behavior in the Second Plane should reflect more maturity in each. Children in Elementary will have enough cognitive growth to notice, and especially in the justice-sensitive window of the Second Plane, will care deeply about whether they perceive rule-makers in their environments to be reliable and fair.
