How you hold your baby will tell you about your character

As you know, 90% of all people are right-handed. But why do most mothers prefer to keep their children on the left side? First of all, this answer comes to mind: holding a child on the left side, women release their right hand to do other work. After all, every young mother knows how many things need to be done at the same time when a small child appears. However, as it turns out, the manner of holding the child has nothing to do with the leading hand. All mothers — both right-handed and left-handed — prefer to keep their baby on the left side.

The question of why women in the vast majority of cases hold a child on the left side has been of interest to psychologists for many decades. A recent study by Italian scientists took us one step closer to answering this question.

A group of scientists from the University of Gabriele d’Anunzio (Chieti Pescara, Italy) conducted an experiment to check whether women who prefer to keep their baby on the left side are really prone to a more secure attachment. Continue reading

The balance of the child depends on the atmosphere in the family

All parents want their children to grow up happy, healthy and balanced. To achieve this goal, many parents read books and materials on the Internet about development, child psychology, and parenting methods. However, they miss the fact that daily interaction with them is more important for raising children. The atmosphere in the family plays an important role for the mental health and well-being of all its members.

Psychologists say that the feeling of safety and love in the family, the time that the child spends with the family, joint activities such as playing games, reading books or talking are very important to him, no less than proper nutrition, physical activity and sleep.

The constant involvement of the child in family affairs also contributes to the fact that he begins to feel an emotional connection with the family, adapts better to society and feels satisfaction with family life. However, for this, parents should not only involve the child in family affairs, but also come up with joint activities that all family members will like. Continue reading

How to deal with a child’s anxiety after the holidays

Many parents and even some children are happy to accept the start of a new school year. If a child can easily get up at 6 a.m., if he likes to learn lessons, he is probably looking forward to the start of a new school year. He is waiting for a meeting with classmates and lessons in which he can learn something new.

However, not all children like to go to school. For those children who do not like to learn and get up early, the beginning of the school year causes severe stress and negative emotions – anxiety, frustration and fear.

To cope with such negative emotions, you must first find out what exactly caused them. Unfortunately, people do not understand the true reasons for their feelings. If the child does not like going to school, he says: “They don’t teach me anything there,” “Teacher doesn’t love me,” etc. With the help of such phrases he protects himself from negative feelings about what can happen at school.
