Parent Child Bonding 2

With studies stressing the importance of initial parent/child bonding on a child’s social, intellectual, and emotional development, what can a mother do if they are separated from their baby after a complex or premature birth?

Touching, hugging, and talking to that child constantly will stimulate your child’s emotional and intellectual development. The baby also knows its mother by her smell.  This is one of the ways an infant can tell who their mothers are.

In single parent households, how can a working mother or father compensate for hours they are not able to spend with their child due to busy schedules?

Try to spend as much quality time as possible. Read and talk with them and share meals with them on a regular basis.  Don’t just let them play along-side of you. Try to do the same activities they are doing in day care.  Mothers should take a certain amount of quality alone time each day with each child. Choose activities that are fun for your child – better yet let the child make the choice, no matter how little they are.  Even small baby has certain toys or peek a boo games that are their favorite.

How do programs like the ones offered at Baby Power Forever Kids promote parent/child bonding?

The child in our program never does anything wrong.  If the child is just looking around, we tell them that we like the way they are watching. We do not compare one child with another child. For example “Look at Sarah, why don’t you go down the slide like she does?”  We ask the  parents to clap for them, we train the parents in making sure they aren’t forcing the child to have fun or play.  Play and fun is what the child perceives–not what your mother perceives. We train the parents to accept the child exactly for who they are.  Every single thing a child does, we acknowledge by clapping.  Not “Good boy, or good girl” its You did a good job,” and explain what they did. Or, if a child is observing, you praise them for their ability to observe. People learn in many different ways – one way a child learns is to observe before becoming active.
