Lack of brain stimulation
Babies’ brains need external stimuli to grow properly. A child who is silent for hours and is left alone to relax or spend hours in front of a television or digital screen can be deprived of the necessary brain development due to lack of stimulation.
Stress and anxiety
Stress damages the brain of the baby and the child. The baby may be frightened by hearing screams and screams and frightened faces, or may be frightened and stressed when he or she sees others being harassed. Stress triggers the release of the stress hormone or cortisol in the baby, which, if left untreated, can have devastating effects on the brains of infants and children.
Shaking the baby vigorously
Neonatal neck muscles are weak and the baby’s head weighs more than his body. Shaking the baby violently to the brain will severely damage the baby’s brain capillaries. This often happens when the baby starts to cry and the mother or father starts to shake him to calm him down from tiredness or anger, to calm him down, which can lead to irreparable damage without an apparent sign being observed in them. For this reason, avoid shaking, throwing, or lifting the baby violently.
Give your child what he or she needs so that your child has an independent personality.
In the past, too much love for a child was thought to make him dependent, lazy, excuseful, and weak. The idea that a child should sit quietly in his chair should not be hugged too much because he gets used to it, or that he should let the baby cry to meet his needs, we have heard many times from the past. But today, research shows that stress has a negative effect on the developing brain and the infant’s brain. In addition, not responding quickly to the child’s needs will have a negative impact on his or her human relationships in the future.
“Research shows that children who are allowed to cry more are less intelligent, healthier, and less cooperative than other children. They are more anxious about their behavior and pass it on to the next generation.” Have transferred. Mothers who meet the needs of their children before their baby cries
They will have more independent children. Of course, this principle is applicable until the age of two, and after the age of two, the child will be taught patience, which I will discuss in future chapters.
You need to know that children grow up by being hugged. The baby’s crying is a sign of his needs. He calms down only when his needs are met.
