So many children have Ipads or Ipods these days. We are plugged into technology from birth it seems. I am not discouraging the use of these things; many apps are wonderful at fostering the development of young minds. However, the successful child needs social interaction in order to learn conflict resolution, problem solving and powers of persuasion, as well as the ability to share. At PALS, we teach your child the skill sets of success and so much more. Come take a tour today!
Bonding from a very young age requires contact, eye contact and an attitude of love. We instinctively bond with our babies a lot. When they eat, when we change a diaper, etc. You can also do bonding and even educational activities paired together. Infant massage when you change a diaper is a great way to end a diaper change with some focused time with your child. You can also do some baby yoga (think gentle stretching movements), do a fingerplay game (like itsy bitsy spider), or sing a song. There are all sorts of teachable moments with your baby, they slip by so fast, do not miss them or overlook their importance.
