The Development of thinking in a child under 3 years


Thinking is the process of formation of representations about the world on the basis of accumulation and analysis of personal experience and also the ability on the basis of this experience to make predictions. Thinking gives you the opportunity to obtain such information about the phenomena and objects of the world which cannot be directly perceived by the senses (for example, information about the properties of matter, the laws of the historical process, etc.). Thinking is closely related to such a property of consciousness, such as memory.

Let us consider the main stages of development of thinking in a child under 3 years old.

From birth to 6 months the world is perceived by the baby in the categories of “here” and “now”. The child still “not started” memory, so there is no time sensitivity, and repeatability of events and phenomena; every object and situation is perceived as something unique.

The Siblings with an age difference of 2 years


The day after I was with her two children going on a vacation. Without her husband ) the Difference of 2 g of 3 months. And now thinking about the upcoming trip reminded me of my long-standing promise )) By the way, the Internet I will not, so I say goodbye to September )

So I want to warn you, I do not insist that the age difference is about 2 years old so perfect that all other choices are bad by definition. I’m sure the difference is big, also has its advantages. Moreover, I think that the difference in age is not a determining factor affecting the relationship of siblings. However, I like a man who consciously and deliberately sought to have a second child within 2 years after the first, and not disappointed in my decision, I want to share my thoughts.

Of course, it is best when parents consciously want a second child – but I have known cases when claiming a categorical unwillingness to even one child’s parents had a child with such a difference – and in the end they acknowledged that turned out to be very convenient Continue reading

I would like to know what to do and how to deal with it and whether it is necessary to struggle. thank you in advance

Reply: Dear Tosha! I think that Your assumptions are correct. Changes in the family are themselves painful for the child, and here the situation develops without it. You need to pick her up from grandma and give it Your maximum attention (read together, go for a walk, draw, sculpt, etc.) that it “thawed”, calmed down and began Continue reading
