Does it really matter how we treat babies?

Postby TalkingPoint » Mon Jun 13, 2005 9:45 am

Considering that we can't remember anything from the first one or two years of our lives (at least), does it really matter how we treat babies and toddlers?

What do YOU think?

treat our babies fairly and evenly

As far as I am concerned, babies and toddlers may not rememeber things vividly.But they do have the ability to sense things around them.They could tell the affection and caring. Any sweet whispers, gentle strokes and tiptoed movements.If they grew up in a loving family, they became secure and confident.These things will have vital impact on their furture life.

It does matter how we treat babies and toddlers even though they don't remember anything because it shows how "human" we are. And I totally agree with Sandra :wink: .

Did you read TP new homework about the piano man? So, what's the answer or the end of that story?

Me neither. But I did see my nephew coming out when his mom was giving birth to him. Then I did babysit him everyday for his first two years. Now I'm his favorite aunt :wink: . When he cries or is being stubborn, no one can tell him to stop except his parents or me. Thus, kids can't remember their first two years, but they can sense who loves them and who don't. If they feel neglected, they won't grow up with healthy emotions.

well of course it matters because the babies behaviors will reflex our treatment wether it is good or bad and believe it or not babies save all the bad treatments that they received in the past in thier mind and then this will be reflexed in thier behaviors in the future and ithink that if we are not able to treat these small inocent todlers in a very compation way , if we didn't have the mercy to give them we will not be able to give them this mercy when they grow up therefore they will not give thier babies in the future this good treatment either

Yes, every moment of our life can have an influence on our life.

Are you sure that none can remember hisher 1-2 first years ?
