Personally, I thought about the need for early development of the child during pregnancy. And not at all influenced by the multitude of literature on this subject. Rather, the example of life.
I have two friends, and their children are literally a fortnight apart. At that time it was about a year old. When I came to the first girlfriend, we played with the baby in various educational games, read books, looked at pictures.
He was already, almost without mistaking, pointing with his finger at those little animals about which he was asked, and even barked, crowed and uttered other sounds characteristic of the animal world. And the most interesting thing is that everyone treated him like an adult.
What did I observe in the house of the second friend? When I came to them for the first time, I naturally began to communicate with the baby at the same level as with the child of friend No. 1. To which his mother told me: What are you? He is still small!
And the truth is, her words already completely justified themselves within the first 10 minutes. In the house, apart from machines and a pair of soft toys, I did not find a single children’s book or educational game. What for? – A friend asked me. – He still does not understand anything at all. And you can not argue because!
From this I made the following conclusion for myself: you definitely need to deal with a child! Having studied the specialized literature, I came across interesting facts:
Firstly, the early development of the child is very useful for the formation of the psyche of the child. In the first three years of his life his brain is actively forming. If by two years the brain is 50% formed, then by three years – already by 80%.
It was during this period that the foundations of human health, his thinking, social activity and various skills were laid. If you miss this moment and do not give the child the necessary base, then it will be much more difficult to correct something.
Secondly, not only genes are responsible for the presence or absence of talents and abilities. If you start to develop the child at an early age, you can help him show various talents and give him a chance to become a truly famous person. After all, who knows, what if the future president or Nobel laureate grows in your family. And in your hands give the child a chance to achieve such heights!
Thirdly, developing your baby, you together with him set off on a magical journey into the world of bright impressions and new discoveries. Believe me, he gets a lot of positive emotions from it. Think of yourself as a child: how you wanted to at least sometimes play with your parents, and what joy the joint pastime brought!
Fourthly, now in a bookstore, library or on the Internet you can find a huge number of different methods of early development. And you can easily choose exactly those methods that are suitable for your baby.
Play, develop and enjoy from communication with the baby! And the results of your classes will keep you waiting for a long time!
