Science gives us new facts on first phases of baby’s life, his development, the formation of the thinnest brain structures in mother’s womb, and this happens much earlier, than it was supposed. It seems unbelievable, but when a size of human fetus is less than 2 mm yet, his brain is already functioning, controlling his further development. And when it reaches 3,5 mm, i.e. in the age of 25 days, human fetus has all most important organs: heart, central nervous system, skin, liver, lungs, bowels and sex.
Little heart is very strong since very beginning. It provides quickly developing brain with blood and, accordingly, with oxygen, cells are dividing strongly. By the 7th week formations of nervous system cells are formed, or synapses, passing signals between smallest nerve fibers. All cells are connected between each other, and when parents talk to their baby, stroke him, sing songs, electric impulses are running through his nerve fibers, making connections between neurons stronger. Several months after birth, those connections between nerve cells, where there’s no connection, will disappear. Thus, we lose what we don’t use.
Human brain can be fairly named the most complicated object in the Universe. It contains a trillion of cells, 100 milliards of which are represented by neurons, united in nets – this is a substratum of intellect, creative talents, emotions, perception and memory. Its formation lasts during first 6 years of life, and these years determine its future condition.
It is important for parents to know that it is necessary to stimulate development of organs of sense during prenatal period, to develop baby’s intellect and cognitive power. It is development of senses, that helps us increasing ability for easy education, and the whole cognitive power of your genius will work to the max.
Many parents confuse stimulation of organs of sense with early intellectual development. Some pregnant women draw letters and figures on their bellies using a luminous beam, instead of singing a song and enjoying classical music. A baby should not be a remedy of self-actualization for a woman. Try to resist a temptation to plan his future successes: speaking English being 1 y.o., reading at 2, and quoting classics at 4 best of all. He will be gifted, genial, if you just give him a chance of living 9 months and his whole childhood in a happy, life-loving, trusting atmosphere, providing his main 5 organs of sense (visual, olfactory, tactual, gustatory and aural) with information.
