There’s more to babies interactions than meets the eye!March 17, 2012 No Comments
With cameras attached to babies to see how they interact with the world, researchers have made the discovery that babies conduct complex social interactions with each other. Australian experts say that babies in settings such as daycare have been shown to use deliberate techniques to make friends, attract attention, manage group situations and even make each other laugh.
These finding shows that babies are very social beings and their understanding of the world is far more in-depth that anyone ever thought. So what does the average parent do with this research? Well the researchers say that we can use this knowledge to get to know our babies better.
With this in mind, stop and observe your baby the next time they are with other babies and open your mind to discovering something new; maybe you’ll discover a born leader, a kind gentle person, a highly organised planner or my all time favourite – a happy baby. Now nothing beats that!
