Making Meal Times more relaxed
The importance of crawling.
You need to crawl before you walk. A popular idiom, for children as well as adults.
Research indicates that there are many developmental benefits for a baby reaching their milestone of crawling. This milestone typically develops in a baby from six months to twelve months. Crawling has been argued to be one of the most important milestones a baby can reach.
When babies are down on the ground, crawling, they are crossing their body's midline. The importance of crawling is that when the midline is crossed, it helps to connect the neurons on the left and right side of the brain. Crossing the body line increases lateral development. This in turn further develops the brain's neurons and helps the brain to communicate from left to right. If a child's neurons are not connected between the left hemisphere and the right hemisphere, there is a significant risk that the child will be delayed in their development.
The continuous movement of crawling helps to stimulate the child's neurons. This will help the child to further develop their cognition. This helps to develop their concentration, memory, and comprehension.
Crawling encourages a child's hand-eye co-ordination. This helps the child with kicking, balancing, running, riding a bike, and most importantly, reading, and writing.
Crawling helps a child to further develop visual spatial skills and depth perception. Two very important skills in navigating their way around their world.
There are different experiences that you can implement to help your child crawl. Crawling through a tunnel is a fun experience for your baby to exhibit. Crawling through their parent's legs, is a fun social experience that will also help to further develop the baby's cognitive development by encouraging their neurons to transmit and create a connection between the left and right hemisphere. A fun and exciting social, language, and cognitive experience that you can implement with your child are, pretending to be an animal by crawling on the ground. Fun animals to be would be an elephant, a crocodile, a snake, a dog, and lion.
