THE EARLIER, THE BETTER
Science confirms that the development of human abilities – loving, thinking, communicating, creating, feeling compassion and controlling one’s own emotions – depends on genetic factors as much as on the environment to which we are exposed.
Everything a baby sees around her, whether it is an environment with a wide variety of stimuli or not, is intermediated by people who relate to her. Your baby develops immersed in relationships, as the one she has with you, who loves her deeply, or with other people who take care of her.
During the first months of your baby’s life there are development opportunities in different areas such as language, cognition and social-emotional relationship. It is important to take advantage of these windows of opportunity to favor development and empower your baby for life.
For many parents, it is news to learn that the most important part of brain structure (80%) is formed during the first three years of life. The peak for language development, for example, occurs at about 8 months; way before the verbalization sets in. This is why it is so important to invest in this short period.
All the wonderful dreams you have for your baby’s future will depend on the abilities she develops in the first months/years of life. Do not let you baby’s primetime go by.
Primetime. Empowering your child for life.
