Ways To Boost Your Baby’s Mental Development

Before Keisha turned one, she already knew how to identify and recognize pictures by its name. During that time, I was so amazed how she did it since I only taught her once and there were so many things that she learned on her own.

She had 5 small books with different categories (shapes, colors, alphabet, countries, etc.) wherein if you’ll ask her, “Where is Mr. Mexico?”, she knew what book to open,  what page it was located and correctly identify Mr. Mexico. Isn’t that amazing? One of these days, I’ll check on my files and share with you her video of that.

For now, here is a video of my smart little girl, Keisha at 16 months old.

To all the mommies out there, I suggest you let your kids watch educational TV shows everyday, surround them with educational charts and buy them toys that will boost their mental capacity. Believe me, these are effective and inexpensive tools perfect for baby’s intellectual development.

    Children’s performance depends on how parents are involve with their learning. The more you are involve, the better.

    how smart. There are some kids that can identify letters before age 1 and some can’t. You must be really proud of her. She will be a book lover once she starts school.

    My son can count in english, spanish and tagalog just before he turned one. Exposing kids to educational toys and shows can really help them a lot.

    Babies are amazing creatures. They easily pick up things from the surroundings. And they are good imitators. They are naturally very intelligent beings. Enhancements begin in the home. Parents and family members have big contributions on this.

    Great job baby! and most of all great job mommy! She wouldn’t be that brilliant if if wasn’t for you. Nowadays there are a lot of ways already to teach the kids effectively even during their early age. Mommies just need to be patient and creative 🙂
