What a great and informative show! If you missed it you must check it out, great advice and tips for any parent. Unfortunately we didn't get discipline, isolation, depression and other things I wanted to ask, but Maggie will be back again.

J - Joint Attention - the process by which one alerts another to a stimulus via nonverbal means, such as gazing or pointing. For example, one person may gaze at another person, and then point to an object, and then return their gaze back to the other person. In this case, the pointing person is "initiating joint attention" by trying to get the other to look at the object. The person who looks to the referenced object is "responding to joint attention." Joint attention is referred to a triadic skill, meaning that it involves two people and a object or event outside of the duo. It is well documented that infants display both types of joint attention at 9 months of age. - Wikipedia
