The relationship between a parent and their toddler is often an unconditional love, but behind closed doors that love is tested, challenged and stretched. This documentary narrative observes a typical day through meal times, play, tantrums, outings and bed times, all of which make up that period of life before formal education takes over. Drawing on my own experience as a mother and observations of three families in North Wiltshire, the project explores the trials and daily routines that try love, touching emotional boundaries never experienced before parenting. Equally, it considers the challenges that small children face, coming to terms with new found emotions they are developing, alongside the world around them.
