Quick Answers...

How can I "read" my child's feelings when he/she won't talk to me? 

You can learn a lot about your child by watching how he/she sleeps, eats, and plays. Look for consistent patterns. Is the child generally active and then quieter when hungry or sleepy? Are there certain objects that hold your child's attention longer? Does your child have a regular schedule?
