When does education start? Set limits for the baby

lighter. Because now your little one will achieve what was previously unattainable: landing, flower pots, electrical appliances, tablecloth tips – everything that makes mom and dad’s nervous palpitations when the sprout comes close to it. And now at the latest most parents are asking:

From when can you raise the baby?

In the first half of life, it is not yet possible to raise a baby, just as little as “moving” a baby. Because at this young age, your baby cannot distinguish what is right and wrong or what means yes and no due to development. So far, it has only been able to draw attention to its needs and is dependent on you as parents satisfying them. So don’t worry about spoiling your child too much because you don’t want them to scream for long. On the contrary, reacting quickly to his signals strengthens basic trust and creates a secure bond. So in the first half of the year, give your child as much attention, care, closeness and physical contact as they require.
Only in the second half of the first year of life do babies gradually develop their own will and learn that they can provoke specific reactions through certain behavior: “Intentional cry” the scientists call it, for example, when babies start to want to influence the actions of their parents through targeted crying. At the earliest, it will be possible to raise the baby at the earliest: if it deliberately controls its actions in order to achieve something, parents must teach it that not always everything can go according to his little head.

Now it’s time to set the baby’s first limits

At the end of the first year of life, you can demand a little patience from your baby. You don’t have to jump right away if it wants something from you, it can now wait for a while. As a rule, parents quickly learn whether something is real or whether their baby is just moaning to attract their attention or to request something. Now you can ignore this whining without feeling guilty.

And what about bans? You can now pronounce the first bans, but assume that they are not yet fruitful. The words “yes” and “no” only become meaningful for babies towards the end of their first year of life. And it takes at least another year before they start to understand the meaning of rules and prohibitions.

No baby!

So how can you convey a “No” most emphatically to a baby from the age of two? If you want to forbid something for your toddler child, then say “No!” With a straight face and take away the object or carry your child out of the “danger zone”. You may be able to justify your ban briefly. The best thing to do is distract your baby with something else. This is the most effective solution in crawling age. Otherwise you should consider the following things:

  • Less is more: A “no” is more impressive if it is not said so often. Don’t get carried away by repeating it over and over again. Use it really only as a prohibition word, especially if it serves to protect the child, i.e. in dangerous objects and situations.
  • Use pitch and facial expressions: Be sure to stay consistent. A “no” is a serious ban, which should also show in your voice and facial expressions. Avoid saying “no” while having fun, possibly while you’re laughing. Then the prohibition word becomes less important.
  • The favor of the hour: Do not rely on your baby or toddler to abide by bans, even if they seem to have understood them. In an unobserved moment, curiosity can quickly gain the upper hand.
  • Praise works better than punishment: Punishments are useless because your baby cannot yet associate punishments with wrongdoing. Praise and loving care for desired behavior work better than punishments for undesired behavior.
  • To be a role model: Be a role model! Babies learn through imitation. So show your child what you want him to do, especially when dealing with other people.

The most important thing is: stay consistent. And always support a “no” with seriousness face and corresponding facial expressions and gestures. So your baby will quickly learn that you are serious about the ban.
