Boost Your Baby’s IQ
Okay, how do you measure intelligence in your child? Well, if you want to use the cultural test used in the United States, then you will find five different test that can measure your infant intelligence. The Gesell Development Schedules, the Fagan Test, the Bayley Scale of Infant Development, the Mullen Scales of Early Learning and the Cattell Infant Intelligence Scale.
These are the five different tests that can measure infant intelligence, that I have read about. I do not have an opinion on which one is best, so in my opinion, I suggest you read them yourself, along with some research to determine that for your family.
Breastfed the Child: As a parent and father of two children, two baby boys, what I do know is children who were breastfed as babies should outperform their formula-fed peers on mental-development test, at least my children did.And I will talk more about that topic in the written material below. For now, I will just say a child’s IQ can be determined by a lot of things that the experts agree on. For example, a complex mix of genetic and environmental factors can help to determine your child’s IQ.Like for example, a mother who does not drink or smoke during her entire 9-month pregnancy, and a child’s home environment where education: reading, writing and math, are more important than watching popular television shows.
But in addition to that, the most important influence is something that you, the parent, can control. Like for example the quality of the care you give your baby. The loving and nurturing your infant will receiveis crucial for optimal intelligence, and so is engaging your child in brain-stimulating activities like flash cards and sign language, which should start around age three, in my opinion, like the ones I have listed below for your review and consideration.
But before I start, let me make something very clear. So, I am going to say this again. I am not a Medical Doctor, nor am I a Pediatrician, but in my opinion, and according to everything I’ve read about the subject, plus my own personal experiences with my two children, I believe children who are breastfed from their mother outperform their formula-fed peers on all baby mentaldevelopment test. And in fact, the longer babies were breastfed during the first year, the higher their IQ tended to become. My wife agreed to breastfed our boys for 8 weeks prior to going back to her professional career at Warner Bros Film Studios, and I greatly appreciated her agreement to do this for our sons.
Nevertheless, If, you decide to choose the formula, because it is necessary for you to do so than please don’t worry, some studies have found that the IQ difference, with all things being equal, is just a few points, on average. I personally think its greater than a few points, but again, I am not a doctor. Now, in addition to IQ, and equally as important, in my opinion, are the Vitamins and Minerals from the mother’s milk, that a child absolutely needs to develop a strong body, and a strong immune system, to help a child get a fair start in life. Here again, in my opinion, organic vitamins and minerals can never be replaced by baby-formula. But, if you’re using baby-formula because it is necessary, please use the iron-fortified formula for the baby’s first year. I read an American University study that found children who had chronic, or severe iron deficiency in infancy scored lower than their peers on every cognitive and motor test’s during their teen years. I suggest that you please find the time to check that information out yourself, in fact, Googling the key words should get you there.
Talk to Your Child: Without question, there is a correlation between the number of words a child hears as a baby and his/her verbal IQ. In my opinion, it’s only logical to agree with this point of view, because the more you talk to your child, the richer a vocabulary he/she will develop. Makes perfect sense to me. Of course, please keep in mind that your words, or sentences or even subjects must be kept simple, because a child thinks in concrete terms, and that is because a child does not think in complex terms yet. So, talk about his truck, or her doll, or his or her blanket, for instance. It will not help to talk about today’s Professional Football Game, Professional Basketball Game, Professional Baseball Game, NASCAR or Hockey on television.
Don’t get me wrong, I personally like football and basketball too, but we’re talking about your child, your baby. And in that child’s mind, he or she, has only one fan he or she sees every day. One fanatic, who comes when they call, one supporter, who is enthusiastically devoted to his or her needs, whatever those needs might be, and that fan is the mother or father of that child. And when your child attempts to communicate with you, the only way they can, you must elaborate on it (“Oh, you want your toy ball.” Or “Oh, you want mommy to hold you, talk to you.” Or “Oh, you want your dipper changed?” or “Oh, you want your bottle!” or “Oh, you want daddy to read to you?”) Stuff like that is what I’m talking about. At your child’s age, those words are complex enough, but the child does understand them, which is my point.
Hold Your Child: Now, once your child understand that you will always come to his or her needs in a loving and reliable way, the child will want to explore his/her new world on his or her own, by looking around and examining the world in which they live. So, make sure you hold him or her, make sure you cuddle the child and make plenty of eye to eye contact, while talking to the child, and let them crawl around. Believe me, nothing motivates children to learn how to talk than wanting to communicate with his or her parents, sisters, brothers and the grandparents (who seem to have a lot of time to give). Which is why they always seem to be pointing at something for mommy, or daddy, like flowers, trees, the dogs or cats, almost everything, just so they can have a conversation with you, so they can communicate with you, the best way they can.
Babies Need Privacy Too! I realize most people think babies need entertainment 24/7 while they are awake, but that is not true, in my opinion. I have read many books, while preparing this information, that suggest children, and babies, need time to amuse themselves, to play with their toys, or to crawl around and explore their surroundings. So, if youconstantly keep trying to entertain your child with a toy every minute he, or she, is awake, you will wear the child out and stop the child from boosting his or her own brainpower, this is a critical point, and you certainly will not help the child develop his/her attention span, which is very crucial for a child’s academic achievement.
Books, Books, and more Books: In the beginning, it may seem like you are just reading out loud to yourself, and the child is not paying any attention to you, or the pictures with words in the book. But, nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is, reading short stories with your child helps you forge a strong emotional bond that last forever, and equally as important, it helps the child learn how to read. For example, the child will begin to grasp the basics of literacy from sitting on your lap, from your reading sessions, which will teach your child there are letters and words on each page and that you read from left to right, and most importantly, the words and pictures, reflect the world in which he or she lives in, and allows the child to see things he or she might not otherwise see, like airplanes, sailing ships, tall buildings, doctors, policemen, firemen, horses, cows, chickens, trains, cars and tigers, the list goes on and on.
What’s most important for you to remember, is that when you reach the end of a book, please find the patience to read it again.Okay, I am going to say this again. “What’s important for you to remember, is that when you reach the end of a book, please, please find the patience to read it to your child again.”Why? Becauseeach time you do, your baby sharpens his or her memory skills (they have seen these pictures and words before), and it’s a delight for his or her when he or she can predict what’s on the next page.
I call it guaranteed brain development for your child, at a very early stage in their education. The fact is, it’s a powerfulIQ booster, in a child’s young brain development, and I know for a fact it works, because I used it with my first-born son, William III. And in my case, I created flash cards, which I personally made from scratch myself. The flash cards I made were cards from A-Z, cards with all the basic colors, cards with all the basic shapes, the numbers 1 to 100, plus basic arithmetic 1 + 1 = 2, basic subtraction 3 – 2 = 1, and basic multiplication 2 x 2 = 4 flash cards.
The pride for me came when, on his first day at preschool, I believe he was 4 years old, I got a call from his teacher who ask if William was a ‘childprodigy’ or ever tested for this type of child development. I ask her why? She said in class today William knew the entire alphabet, all numbers from 1 to 100, all basic colors and shapes, and some math. In fact, I had to ask him to stop raising his hand because he insisted on answering all the questions, before any of the other children could say anything. I calmly said, “No, William is not a child prodigy, but he has been taught all those things, and more, by me with the use of flash cards that I made, and he has seen them every night for about two years, I apologize for his disruption to your class.”This is a true story, my own personal experience with my child, so if you like, use my story as your motivation to educate your child, and boost your baby’s IQ.
Baby Flash Card Benefits
What age to start using flash cards?The Experts say……
Teach Your Baby to Read with Flash Cards. The best time to start teaching your baby to read is between the ages of 3 months and 3 years old. The younger a child is, the more quickly they can learn to read. We recommend starting at 3 months old because the child’s visual pathway is developed by that time.
Why is talk for learning Important? The Experts say……..
Talk becomes critical when students discuss tasks or ideas and question one another, negotiate meaning, clarify their own understanding, and make their ideas comprehensible to their partners. It is during collaborative tasks that students must use academic language if they are to focus on the content.
Baby Sign Language Benefits
Baby Sign Language: What I didn’t know when my sons were babies, but I know now, is that to communicate with your baby before he ever learns to speak can be done with Sign Language. I have read several books on the subject at this point, so let me share with you what I’ve learned so you too can enjoy this incredible form of communication with your baby. The fact is, you will be lending his or her intelligence a helping hand when you help your child develop this special skill.
It is a known scientific fact that sign language has a positive effect on a child’s IQ and language development. Here in the State of California, at the University of California, Davis, there was a study conducted where babies who learned about 20 signs talked earlier and had higher IQs than those who didn’t. Can you imagine, a baby having a conversation with his or her parents by using his hands to communicate. The issue of trying to figure out what the baby wants is no longer a problem. In fact, I am so excited about the information below because it illustrates how to teach your baby how to use sign language to communicate his or her needs.
Baby sign language experts believe that frustration and tantrums can be avoided by closing the gap between desire to communicate and the ability to do so. … Infants who learn baby sign language also are thought to gain psychological benefits, such as improved confidence and self-esteem.
When should babies begin? Some babies can learn simple signs as young as 6 months. But your baby may not have the hand control to be able to sign back to you until she’s 8 or 9 months old. You can start teaching signs to your baby when you think he or she ready – even if he or she can’t sign back yet.
