[ A father holding his infant son, Duke, while they both watch the older brother climb on a outdoor jungle gym. ]

( Father ) Look at brother, Duke! Look at him climbing. He’s going down. Look, Duke, he’s going down, and now he’s going up. You want to try too? Come on Digadee-Duke. Come on Duke, you can get this. Come on, man! You can grab this one right here, buddy.

[ With Duke held safely in his arms, the father helps Duke to try to grab hold of the bar in front of them. ]

( Father ) Come on Duke. (sings) “Get the beam, get the beam. Be like brother, brother’s going up. Get the beam, what’s up Duke?” Duke! Duke! Duke! Grab the beam, Duke!

[ Note to viewer: Put the child within reach of the object. Be patient! ]

( Father ) You can do it, buddy. You want to go down? Look! Down.

[ While still holding Duke, the father lowers and raises him beside the bars. Duke lightly grabs on to the bar. ]

( Father ) Yeah, man! And then up. Yeah, go and feel it out man. That’s okay. Yeah! Just like brother. Let’s go up. Yeah man! Yeah!
