during the first 24 months, the intellectual development of a child gradually enables him to do the following;

* to integrate sensory information
* to form associations and expectations so that he/she can learn to make sense of the world.
* to develop object permanence.
* to learn how to think in an abstract way and how to make deductions.
* to develop concept of time.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

ENCOURAGE HIM TO SHIFT HIS FOCUS FROM A YELLOW CIRCLE TO YOUR FACE. as your baby develops intellectually, his cortex becomes more dominant and the role of the brain stem becomes less important. as a result your child develops more control over his own actions. by deliberately creating situations in which he can shift his attention from one object to another, you are making the most of this opportunity to encourage the formation of many strong connections between brain cells in the areas of his brain that are currently being wired

glue a balck A4 sheet of paper onto a cereal box. attach a yellow circle onto the blacki background. keep the box where you usually do diaper changes. after changing the diaper while baby is still lying down, hold the box in front of your face to give him a good view of the circle. use a high tone in your voice. then move the box away so he can see your face. continue doing this for 2 weeks.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy
