Developing your child’s brain:   Are you a parent of an infant? a toddler? a preschooler? Then I hope this research will surely help your baby. The first five years of life are very important for building a baby’s brain. And that’s what we—parents,grandparents, caregivers—do every day. In fact, everything you do and say can help to “wire” your child’s brain—for thinking, feeling, moving, and learning. These are the years when you can make a big difference in your child’s development and his or her   future. Some guidelines are as follows :   $    1. The magic of touch: every time  when you hold your baby a message is sent to your baby’s brain and a connection is formed between you and baby. when you touch your newborn it teaches him/her that he/she is loved. When your baby is in stress gently touch him to calm down. A baby who is calm can take in the sights, sounds, textures, and smells around him. When you hold and hug your child you too will feel a special closeness especially when you are stressed.   $   2.      Teaching baby about feelings: People who are smart about feelings are said to have emotional intelligence this kind of child gets along easily with other and enjoy their preschools. Teaching your child about feelings and self-control starts in the first five years of life. You know what your baby is feeling and you let him know that you know. When you do this, you help build the connections in his brain that produce those feelings. You are building emotional intelligence. For example when your baby smiling at you smile back this teaches her to be social and how to relate with others. If he or she cries out by hearing  a noise let he/she feel  you  are there by holding her and patting her letting her know that you won’t let anything happen to her. This shows your baby that she/he is safe and you understand how he/she feels. A secure baby is learning self control Stress and fear produce a chemical called cortisol which can destroy brain cells. A child who has had many of these frightening experiences may have trouble in school.   3. Firm but loving guidance: Make sure your child is safe. Be ready to stop any behavior that is not safe.  Try to be a role model for your child. Children often imitate how adults behave .Set clear limits and have simple rules. Children feel safer when they know what is expected of them. Use “No” very rare. Explain your reasons in simple language and Plan interesting things for your child to do.     4. Helping Your Child Make Friends   5. Talking and Listening: Children learn language from being with people who talk to them and listen to them, not from watching TV. Talk a lot. Say it loud Use as many different words as you can. When you talk to your baby all the time, you give her a head start on talking and listening. Even though she may not understand what you are saying at first, her brain is building the connections for language.   6. Sharing: teach her to share example by sharing your own things with him or her.   7. Music Together: Most likely your child will love to hear you sing. It doesn’t matter What your voice sounds like. Sing to your baby as you hold him. He will feel the vibrations of your body and hear your voice. Singing songs over and over will help prepare his brain for Listening and speaking.   8. Play: play with your baby; research shows that children with good play skills tend to do well in school. Play helps develop thinking skills—recalling experiences, figuring out how to replay them, and solving problems. Play develops social skills as children work together and share ideas.   9. Art : children communicates in different ways by facial expression by storytelling  etc another way is art where he or she explores his or her ideas. Notice how your child’s drawings become more realistic and reveal how she views the world. Art materials provide rich sensory experiences.   10. You too take care of your baby, you need to take care of yourself. Because your child learns so much from you, your health and well-being are very important. As a parent, at times when you will be tired, frustrated at that point it may be hard for you to respond to your child in a positive way. When you feel like you are “losing it,” take a step back and try to gain control.
