In my opinion it´s important to treat babies very well cause the behavior´s babies will reflect according the treatment.

We have to treat everyone very well.

Are we becoming nasty ? we all are friends.

Sorry, IMHO, this topic is very laughable and meaningless.

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

Very true, we all can't remember our 1-2 first years, so are our babies. but remember! NO parents would NOT treat their babies kindly and with all their lives and love!

It isn't about whether-we-should-do-so, but about we-naturally-do-so!

When my daughter was about 1-2 years old, she was a true trouble-maker! she peed on my clean clothes, and sometimes when I was so tired and fell asleep, she wakened me with her nails scratching on my cheeks; I couldn't get a full-night sleep during her first 1-2 years. and yes, it didn't matter whether I treated her well, because she wouldn't remember anything if I treated her in a terrible way. however, It would be IMPOSSIBLE for me NOT to treat her well! that is what we call parents! absolute love for kids, no reason! just nature!

Even lions look after their young!

That's a saying to expect a woman to be a good mother, but you know for sure there are mothers out there who are worst than monsters. They either emotionally or physically abuse their kids since the day they were born because those kids were not wanted at all. It's so sad.

What do you think?


Of course, It really matters. When child is born, he is unaware of the sorroundings. The mother's lap is like a school for him where he can learn the ABC of life. He needs guidence from everyone. He/she can go about anything merely by holding your finger. In a cosequence, he can remember what he is taught. We had better treat the child with love and kindness and in this way he can grow up with required environement.

We should respect everyone 'coz we are equal. How can ignore the natural right of babies and toddlers?
Another point is that babies have curiosity of everything. And that's a good time for young parents to establish a good relationship with their children.

I think treatments with babes is important, because babes can learn everything fastly, and may be your treatment will influent on them. babes don't know how wrong is or true, so they just learn and imitate everything people treat them.
Be careful! I'm not sure, but that's my idea.
Thanks.

I think that's important how we treat a baby and what we did in front of him/her. When a baby is older, it can't remember what happened when it was a baby. But, the first impression we made for it surely affect to its conception. Example, when we always let a baby see the money we have, when he's old, and he know about the value of money, he'll always think: my parents always have much money, and he'll depend on his parents

I think that all parents and babysisters should treat babies and toddlers the best they can do.
All babies need these; food, warm, and love. And I think almost people know about psychology. Our subconciousness has developed from this period, first 1-2 year of life.
Even though we can't remember what really happened during that time, but this doesn't mean we can ignore our children. It's not related!
Who is the first babies run to when they cry? Who is the first babies hug when they fear? Who is the first babies smile when they see? And Who is the first can stop they crying?
This is why we need to treat them well.
In fact, I don't have my own baby yet. But I know that a family is a basic element. And this element is very important. If we don't have families, we can't survive until today. We may die as soon as we born. And we might not be like this, if we didn't be treated well when we were young.
Thank you.

I once heard a story about an orphanage where something very weird was going on in the babies' room. It was a room filled with cribs, one next to another. For months, the orphanage staff observed that the babies that slept in the last crib of the row grew up healthier and happier. Why did that happen? What was wrong with that crib?

Well the answer was simple: every night, after the maid had finished her task, she would rest by the last crib, and talk and caress the baby in it.

I think it is very significant subjet & it must be taken in our consideration, due to its greatest importance. There is no doubt , babies are our future , through them we hope to accomplish our dreams, ambitions & aims, that we had no opportunity to achieve them. Babies are our delightful God's gift,& the successful end of our life. They will complete our life messge to maintain our traditions, beliefs, & moralities from one generation to another,which enable them to do the best for their families & their homelands.They are our young future & we proudly see our glorious future through them.

Baby child is so vulnerable, we must treat them very carefully, even though, they might not remember what happened to him in his 1 - 2 years old.

Of course it matters the way we treat and teach our sons. Let me just ask you something. Would you like to be treatted nice and with love or would you like to be mistreatted or would you like to be abuse by someone. Babies, eventhough they can not express themsleve they have feelings and they undestand what happend at their enviroment.

So of course it matter and we should all take care of our babies and of the childs.

I am a mother of a six month years old baby now. You don't know that how clever they are. They use their clear eyes to watch what is going on around them. They smile to you if you treat them in a kind way, them cry if you do any bad things to them. Maybe they really can not remember thing at their early age, but it not means we can treat them as we like, right? How come if you have pet dog or cat? They can not speak also, but you can treat them bad? No!!!right, you will love them.

Having a baby does not make you an expert. Were that true, we wouldn't have so many broken families in the world.

I remember seeing and listening to many experts on the matter saying that the most important years in a person's life are the first 5 years, because during these years the person builds up his/her personality, which is very very important to suceed in any society.

Also, I remember this news I saw about a year ago, where this hospital where twins were born very early, and they noticed a baby was not doing so well. The nurse decided to put both babies in the same machine... she was thinking that perhaps the company of the little bother could help the sick one.

I was very surprising to see how the little baby improved his health. And it was amazing to see the little brother's support: he usually "hugged" his brother by putting his arms just above his brother's chest... sort of like cheering him up.

Ain't it touching?

First : We think that we can't remember anything from the first one or two years of our lives , but in reality we remember that by doing something which is related to our mind ...( my teacher said that xD ) so , it really matters how we treat babies and toddlers .

ps: sorry my english is poor

sure it's really matter how we treat babies
and toddlers?
I think we all teart babies and toddlers with a different way
these differences have an impact on how good the experience of childhood is
so if u want a good person u have to prepare this person from the beginning u have to treat him very well u have to respect him from the beginnig.

Do you do it for the babies or for your reputation ? :lol:

Hey, baby ! wash the dishes, clean the kitchen, bring me my beer. :lol: (mouarf)

You do it to be happy, not for your social image.

yes, we should. This is the stage of one's life where he/she adapts well to the environment. We may not know, but don't we realize why a baby or toddler understands the language fast? I think this is the time where we are most brilliant. So whatever was instilled to the baby's mind will retain in him..

it really does!!

you know, if you treat your babies in a way that is not acceptable from a genuine mother to do.... cuz you know, your babies might grow up to obtain an over rude behavior, and that certainly based on the way you treated them.. but if you did the exact opposit, you won't be a bit sorry for, cuz they will present their comunity in the future, for sure as you taught them... besides, they will be decent once that you could be proud of, and, too, they will be proud of having such coool mother such as you...

there are a lot to say about this issue.. but you know i don't like to enlarge the topic cuz your question is specified... actually i did :lol:

thanx 4 ur ask

Yours Ahmed
