to make your baby smarter?

October 4, 2008

My daughter Erika is getting bigger and she is learning fast. She knows what’s I am talking about, and also knows where the things belongs, I should say, she can find the relations between things. 

(Such as, when I sing ABC song, she knows where to find the toy that plays this song.) 

I think nowadays, the parents learned more how to take care of their little ones, and give them the BEST ! 

(This also gives me a little pressure to ‘train’ myself to be a better, smarter parent! )

we always want our kids to be smarter.. and here I found a list of tips to encourage your baby / little kid to be smarter. 

Oh well, if we have a CHANCE ,why not give a try?

The following is the excerpt from this article

Janet Doman’s Tips on Building a Better Brain for Your Baby
1. Respect your baby’s intelligence: Talk to your baby about everything you’re doing. Use real words.
2. Teach your baby the name of everything.
3. Pay attention to your baby: He will tell you what he needs, if you give him a chance.
4. Listen.
5. Create a stimulating environment: Eliminate the chaos of extraneous noise; provide one stimulating item at a time; stop before your baby wants to stop.
6. Pay attention to the frequency, intensity and duration of stimulation. Use the five pathways into the brain: seeing, touching, tasting, hearing, smelling.
7. Live on the floor: Babies need ample time on their bellies to crawl and later to creep. These are critical stages of mobility. 
8. Avoid devices that confine your baby: No playpens, walkers or jumpers.
9. Keep morning time sacred: Its the best time for the baby. If you leave
the baby with someone else, try to do it in the afternoon or evening.
10. Spend time at home: Parents and babies lose precious time together when they constantly pack up and go out.

We started signing ABC very young to my son, and it’s his fave. He can say ABCD now (at 21 months) and a few other letters too!
