When a new baby is born, everyone is excited. The parents are proud and the grandparents are in a hurry to tell everyone about the new, special addition to the family.
There are not many thoughts about baby brain these days. But as the new baby continues to grow, everyone is excited about his progress. Everyone is convinced that the child is very smart. Everyone has a lot to learn.
Newborn brain research continues to teach us a great deal. We now know that his brain is about a quarter the size of his adult brain. We also know that his brain cells are still waiting to be connected. Their use is what binds them, the most important thing is that if they are not used, they will disappear.
These facts about the brain are just one scientific breakthrough that has changed what we know about the importance of the baby in its early years.
We know that the brain never stops changing in a person’s lifetime. The most intense period of brain development is in the first three years of a child’s life. Even at the age of 3, a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult’s. (Just a note: as a teenager, his brain will even change).
A child’s brain develops based on his genetics և life experience. In the early years, the quality of his relationships and experiences had a profound effect on the “wires” of the brain moving. Even in these first years, you make a change that sets the stage for its development in every aspect of life. This is another great way for your child to be the first teacher.
Brain development և behaviors are interrelated. They constantly influence each other. Each brain can develop in different ways, depending on genetics, experience, relationships, health, and nutrition. This means that what you do as a parent in these first days of his or her life affects his or her future.
The potential of what a parent does begins earlier than we thought it would. This is not a cause for concern. It is an opportunity to bring up parents more rewarding than ever, while remaining one of the most exciting and joyful opportunities a parent has ever had. You can make positive, long-lasting behaviors a part of his life. What you do as a parent today can make a difference in who your child becomes tomorrow.
Make sure she feels loved. Make sure he knows he can do it for you. Be sure to open the world to him. Tell him about the things around him. Let him learn about the world from you.
Read books to her, even at a young age. Talk about pictures of books, but even talk to him about stop signs: signals. Let him hear your voice, the voices of other important people in his life. Take his places և talk about experiences to remind them. Listen to what he has to say, even if you do not understand it.
You introduce your baby to the world. Enjoy your time together. Be open about the things you will teach him. Be sure to include daily hugs and kisses.
