Age: 2 years, 10 months
Location: My House
Length: 1 hour and a half
Who was present?: Myself and Ellis

He also usually shows things through speech and I would like to see if he would take a different approach when baking. He was a very playful child and I would like to see if he messes around whilst we bake. He usually throws tantrums when he doesn’t get what he wants so I would like to see if I can change this or maybe see if he still does this now he is older. Ellis was very easy to get along with so I chose baking as it involves team work so this might show his easy to get along with side. Also in the first visit I found out that if you asked him not to do something he wouldn’t listen he’d just go ahead and do it. I would like to see if he does this still or maybe see if I can find a way around this. I found out through secondary research that when making a child may start to learn measurements, for example – how much chocolate must go into the buns. I also found that baking can help patience, for example Ellis is impatient so baking will help...
