Participating in each child’s psycho-motorical development with amazing changes during their growing up is a daily concern of the parent / guardian. Children need more support and stimulation, although many children make stubborn mistakes until they reach their goal. Each part of childhood is special and unique through the physical and mental development, growth, learning, and individuality of the child.
Newly born children have limited free movement. They have no longer control over the neck muscles, but turn their heads left and right of the free airways. The baby will be able to hold his head on his own for a few seconds until the end of the first month. He will need the support of an adult to carry, take and put out of bed / cradle. If the child gets scared, they should be treated more gently, giving him or her a secure and firm support. From birth, they have “heard” the baby in working order. The child learns by imitating information from his environment. Touch, attention, singing lullabies, carrying in your arms are important. In the second month the baby starts to cry with crying. She quickly begins to listen to especially human speech. At first, the baby listens without looking for the source of the sound and over time associates the color of the voice with the person. Your reward will be a satisfied smile on your baby’s face. If you are quiet, your baby will not speak quickly. Watching your face closely, the mimicry lingers on for the longest time. The baby’s hearing and speech development exercises are daily speech, gentle speech, singing, and rhythmic carrying in your arms.
The infant masks muscle control in advanced months. She learns to turn her head and hold her upright. The back muscles in the sitting position teach the baby to stand upright at six months. By the first birthday, the baby learns to lean on his feet. If you raise the baby by the hands, the head will follow the body line. Baby you can help by playing on your back or bellies by approaching your baby on both sides and offering colorful items that will distract your baby. A suitable shape for a small handful of babies is the rattles, rodents that babies hold securely in their arms and most often place in the center line of the body (usually the mouth).
Baby’s open fists are an invitation to put something in them – the best toys are easy to hold and produce sound. This catches the baby’s attention as they look at their hands, connecting sound, image and movement. Try to hang a rattle or soft toys 25 cm away from the child who will play trying to reach the object. At 4 to 6 months, the baby is able to focus his gaze on the object and reach for it. By grabbing, touching, moving objects / players from fist to fist, the child gathers a range of skills and information. The urge to sit and stand is innate. When an adult approaches the child, the child persistently extends his arms to straighten it. If the infant catches the stroller, it stretches the body until it is seated. You help your child by ensuring the safety of the space and being with the child with a toy, talk or music / singing. You can hold a child of seven months in your lap so that your back is firmly against your chest. Lifting it to the first upright position of the cart opens a new world of smells, colors, sounds. Leaning out of this position means that the child is ready for longer and longer sitting positions, standing with your help. Unless the adults insist on the child, they will never do any activity for which they are not prepared. The same is true when starting to sit, stand, walk in a walker, or with a safe object, or start walking independently. A child who hesitates to crawl on the floor will be weighed down faster if you show him a toy a short distance away. The teddy bear will be a good challenge for a nine-month-old baby to dare and get on his feet with adherence.
Talk to your child who will let you know that he or she understands you and communicates their needs and desires. Spoken words and expressions for colors, shapes, distances, moods all the time. Repeat even when you are sure your kid does not understand your words. Every conversation is a useful investment in the development of a child. Speech therapists and physiotherapists can be good and necessary allies in the treatment of serious disorders — in speech and body motor with the daily love and attention we need to give to a child.
