Every mother, it seems that instinct even your son, your intelligence to develop fun and healthy. And this will has nothing to do with being better than someone else, but know make the best possible way all the best the world has to offer.
Just that, sometimes, we forget one very important detail: to become smart, the child needs to receive stimuli. And that, since very little.
A few days ago, I read a very cool text, on a site that I love, who shared 20 simple tips to help stimulate the intelligence or IQ (intelligence quotient), as you prefer to call, the child. As I found the tips very nice, not only for stimulating the intelligence but also the well-being and happiness of children, I decided to translate them and share them here.
The website that published the original text is an American Journal of Orange, a city in California, USA.The article was written by colaborada Kelly St. John Regier, who routinely address in their texts matters pertaining to family, children, education and similar themes.
Come see what interesting what she talks about the development of children’s intelligence.
20 Simple Ways To Make Your Child Smarter
What’s the best way to stimulate your baby’s mind? No, you don’t have to be an expert on the subject to do so. Just being a loving parent and involved.
Then check out 20 easy ideas for fun and increase the IQ of your son.
- Read a book: your child will never be too young to become a reader, says Linda Clinard, literacy consultant and author of the book “Family Reading Time Fun”. When reading, embrace your baby and see the book with him. Even if the child doesn’t understand what you’re seeing, “she will associate reading with care and love,” says Clinard. Young children are especially drawn to books with real images, she adds.
- Right away, give your child sugar:human brains are wired to seek security and, if the brain of a baby doesn’t feel safe, he won’t be able to learn. To establish this relationship, just give love and affection for your son. “Since the birth of the child, that still small voice and loving and gentle touch means so much to them,” says Clinard.
- Sing:nursery rhymes, songs of advertisement or your favorite songs-babies love singing. (Read also: how music helps in child development)
- Keep eye contact: look at your newborn’s eyes. Within a week, the child can recognize the face of their parents and, every time he looks at you, she will be building your memory and learning to recognize facial expressions.
- Tell about your day: talk a lot with your baby. Research shows that the greater the number of words that children hear from their parents and caregivers before 3 years, the greater your IQ. Tell them what you’re doing, what you’re thinking and what they’re seeing.
- Use the right tone: the infantile voice, with a higher tone, that many parents use instinctively has a purpose. It helps the baby’s brain to learn the language, making the sounds of the vowels more distinct and the highest tone which makes the baby to imitate.
- Count out loud:when you wash your hands and feet of the baby in the bathtub, count the fingers out loud. Count the toys with him, or when he’s older, count the cereal that he’s learning to eat. Soon he will say things to you.
- Point the finger:research shows that children learn the language faster if you point to an object by saying the word.
- Applications Use to come up with ideas:there are applications that give ideas to simple but impacting activities that help in the development of the child since birth. In Orange, an app quite used is Kimberly Goll, it is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese and allows parents to follow the progress of their children. Search games for each age stage.
- Breastfeed, if you can: there is a small but clear link between breastfeeding and cognitive development. So, if you can, keep the exclusive breastfeeding until 6 months the breast and continue breast-feeding until the child is partially complete a year.
- Turn off the tv: the American Academy of Pediatrics says children should not be exposed at any time, in front of the screens before the 18 months, says Dr. Yson rosette-Zaragoza, pediatrician, Pediatric Association of the municipality of South Orange (California). “These types of situations of non-interactive preview can be harmful to the development of baby language,” she says. “Let the child live with real people to the 18 months and, after that, if they want to see something online or watch, watch with them and talk about what you see.”
- Respond to your baby’s needs in a timely manner: when a baby cries, he’s telling you that you need something like comfort food or the diaper should be changed. When you respond to cries he learns he can count on you. It’s not spoiling the baby finds what he wants when he’s screaming.
- Give him the option to choose:even a baby of 3 to 5 months of age has an opinion. Show him two books or two toys and see what it feels more drawn to look or touch, says Clinard.
- Play hide and seek: play hide with the mother or the father is not only fun for the kids. It is also teaching that objects can disappear and then reappear.
- Tickle feet: make jokes with the fingers and teach the child to anticipate situations.
- Give it a rest: pay attention if your baby is showing signs of excess stimulation. If he’s averting my eyes, don’t force him. Let him have a free time, on the ground, without music or lights, so that he can have fun, playing quietly or crawl.
- Leave home: maybe today was a puppet show at the library, the day is joyful at the park or at the Zoo. Your baby will be entertained by new sights and sounds. Clinard recommends the selection of programs for children.
- Let your baby view: show your baby a mirror. At first, he may think you’re looking for another child, but then you’ll love doing the “other” smile and wave.
- Play play: when your baby is less than 6 months, have a seat in a Chair like that with tray and give him soft toys from Wholevehicles. When he play the toys on the floor, talk about what you’re doing. She’s learning cause and effect (when you play, a toy falls) and soon will begin to search for items on the ground.
- Speak French or Spanish with the child: if the parents or caregiver you know another language, talk to the baby in this language. “It’s actually an advantage for children to be bilingual because it encourages parallel thinking. It has no relationship to delays in language”, ensures Yson-Zaragoza.
