8 types of child intelligence: development tips

In modern society, it is generally accepted that the child’s performance in school is the only indicator that determines its potential. When a child gets older, many parents want him to become comprehensively developed and successful in different areas of life. But before he goes to school, you must understand – your child is smart, despite his grades and physical fitness.

Scientists claim that there are different types of intelligence (there are 8 of them), and a child can have any of these eight types. In some ways, he will certainly be strong.

Parents must recognize the signs that characterize their type of intelligence from an early age. If you begin to develop these traits from an early age, you will be able to assess its potential and understand that it can be more important than academic performance in mathematics or physics.

Actions that prove love to a child

Every child needs love, attention and time that parents will spend with him. You must help your children feel safe and strengthen their self-confidence. So you will make a great contribution to his future.

The child is most affected by the habits and rituals that are accepted in your family. Even on days when you are very busy, you can show your child that you care about him.

To ensure that your child always feels valuable and loved, follow these guidelines.

1. Be careful. When a child wants to talk to you, listen to him. Set aside all affairs and maintain eye contact with him. Show him that you are interested in what he is telling you – is it about insects, a movie that you’ve watched many times, or something else. If you cannot immediately quit your activity, tell your child about it and return to the conversation as soon as you have free time and you can pay attention to it. Continue reading

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
