Many parents care about their child as early as possible “sat on the potty.” And starting early to potty train, many of them fail, blaming it on just your baby. But was he really?
Some parents are trying to teach your child to potty as soon as he started to sit up, trying to get rid of Laundry and diapers, others, on the contrary, in no hurry, and their child at the right time a few days he suddenly sits to the right place.
Why is this happening? And the thing is that every baby has periods most sensitive to the development in that skill associated with the maturation of organs and systems of the body. Toilet training of the child must involve a sufficient period of strengthening the walls of the bladder, nervous system development and certain centers of the brain. And it happens not before 1 year 4 months. I note that this is the average age, in fact some children begin to control the processes of urination and defecation a little earlier and others a little later, but in any case, they all go through the same stages of development.
By the way, it should be noted that those parents who try to teach your toddler to use a toilet too early, often wait too early successes from him in other areas of development. Continue reading
The first sign that delivers the infant to the adult, it is screaming and crying. Report problems to the baby until it can only be the only available method. How to understand what the child wants to say and how to help him? Why is the child crying?
The first child’s cry has a “human” sense, it means something. The baby can be hot or cold, he was hungry, to drink, to sleep, sometimes he wants to communicate and just bored one lie in the crib. From the first days it is better to listen to a crying baby, to answer this important question “Why is baby crying?”, and to begin to discern what different types of crying, what it sounds intonation – complaint, demand, claim. The view that “let her scream – your lungs will be better developed” may not be here as a guide to action. Imagine what would have happened if all the strength had tried to inform others about the need for aid, and they would be turned away from You and did not react. But baby it all feels. A crying baby is not a way to “manipulate” adults, and a cry for help in a situation is really problematic for the baby.
Why is the child crying?
What you need to pay attention, trying to understand why the child is crying:
The nature of the cry: intense, sharp, long, loud, the volume Continue reading
The lectures of the famous British child psychiatrist and psychoanalyst addressed to pediatricians, internists, obstetricians, nurses, and, of course, parents. For parents and expectant moms and dads – this book is immensely important because it relieves the unfounded anxiety and instills confidence. It describes and analyzes motherhood as it is, without horror and embellishment. For example, the feeling of total absorption in newborn, bordering on extinction of self, depression and irritation, fear of being “a bad mother”, the strange behavior of the child.
Professionals will be pleasantly surprised or, conversely, puzzled and a little shocked, but I’ll get food for thought.
Probably, Winnicott was also a kind man.
It is difficult to write the Foreword to the book, which is not like him, but maybe even harder to the one that is admired. I want to use some superlatives, and I think, I myself would this Preface did not believe. But what to do if the book of Winnicott is really an absolutely unique phenomenon in the psychological and psychoanalytic literature, and his figure is seen standing at the gates of modern non-classical analysis may be a kind of measure things.
I remember such a case: Continue reading
