Start developing your child through yoga
I've seen these words while watching a morning television show. Children aging from one to four years old are in their development stages. They are eager to learn new things and ideas they can grasp from their environment.
Working mothers without help at home bring their offspring at the day care centers wherein toddlers spend discovering new things with the help of the staff.
Not only adults can practice yoga or meditation. Children need to practice it too but not in silence. It is a different kind of yoga. We cannot stop the hyper activeness of children nowadays.
Children are always thinking about playing at all times. They never rest and seldom you can make them sleep in the afternoon. All they want to do is play. This period of development involves their motor development, intellectual skills, social involvement among others. Through playing, they are able to discover new things.
Parents tend to block their hyper activeness which is wrong. Babies and toddlers are restless because they want to discover new things. That’s why when they have the ability to talk, they bombarded us with questions about different things around them.
Doing the Baby Yoga
Putting them at the day care centers can help them further develop their talents and skills. Staff will teach them the rudiments of yoga, the baby’s way. Day care staff allows them to discover things on their own.
This is not the silent way of doing yoga. But experts say that babies who doing their own thing help them to build their muscles, their skills and most importantly, their brains. Although, guidance of parents or teachers will always be there, babies and toddlers alike want to discover things by themselves.
While doing their doing noisy yoga, like screaming, laughing, running around, crying or singing…our silent approval will do by having a watchful eyes during their restless activities.
