. As children interact with the world around them
. Dear Parents, I have extensive experience working with children, and I have a degree in early childhood education; so, I will describe the useful steps that you can take for helping your child’s development. It will be easy to follow these steps. I will give you some information about the theory from a famous psychologist named Piaget
Piaget’s theory is concerned about the child rather than the adult learner and their mental growth. It emphases on cognitive development, but it doesn’t talk about learning of information or behaviors. The purpose of the theory is to explain the mechanisms and procedures by which the infant, and the child, progress into a person who can reason and thinks using hypotheses. The theory advises that children move through various stages of mental development which emphases not only on understanding how child acquire knowledge but also on comprehension the nature of intelligence. The first stage he calls sensorimotor because children use their five senses and movements to learn. Piaget believed that children play an active role in the learning method, acting much like little scientists as they accomplish experiments, make observations, and study about the world. As children interact with the world around them they always accumulate new knowledge. They build on current experience and adapt previously held ideas to accommodate additional information. Parents can support early learning by providing the appropriate materials for them to play with. They can also spend time engaging and guide the baby. Sandra is in the secondary circular reactions stage right now which means she is understanding your actions and she can memorize this action and she will repeat because she has her own goal line. For example, she wants to drink milk/water and hold her own bottle. The children repeat enjoyable actions that include objects as well as the movement connecting their own bodies at this stage.
In addition, Piaget’s theory, it will give you information about how Sandra will learn the language. Some scientists believe that language is acquired step by step through combining ideas with parent’s reactions; to reinforce children’s language by means of repeating their own words back to them, and correcting their words. For example, when Sandra says ma-ma you should repeat that do you want to say mom? A different theory explains that language is innate, and children’s brain is ready to use a language, so you should talk with your baby. Another theory talks about social Impulses that help a child learn the language. They have social impulses because the children need social interaction to survive; children look at parent’s faces and they listen to parent’s voices. I think that all the theories talked about the fact, so those theories will be helpful to use for helping your child develop language.
