Parenting is the loveliest and at the same time, the most worrying part in any person’s life! No one is experienced enough to understand the baby talk and its essential needs, when it cries. Only mother is gifted with those special skills so that she could very easily comprehend her little one’s blabbers! However, the mother too sometimes would panic not able to get the true meaning of her kid’s cry.
So, this is the first thing a mother should avoid. She should not get tensed especially in front of her baby as it tends to respond to the environment more quickly. If your baby cries, try to pacify him or her without any tension. Then try to analyze the reason for its tears. Even if the little one is not convinced by all your calm efforts like satiating its hunger, playing with him then it is high time that you take him to a doctor.
The parents should be very careful while teaching their kids to speak. There is a common practice among parents, who soon after the child starts speaking the initial words like mother, father and other close relations, they tend to have fun with the kid by teaching him or her to tell unwanted words and thereby have rolls and rolls of laughter.
This might seem to be funny in the beginning, but as days go on, the kid would not understand the true meaning of such filthy words, and by matter of practice, it happens to say those words to unexpected people or in any public place that would become a black mark for you. So, be very cautious in teaching new words for your kids as they would get into the same practice!
While taking care of the kids, as good parents there are lots of delicate matters to be handled carefully. Some kids would be of open type by expressing as what they feel while some others would be very moody and reserved. It is quiet easy to deal with the kids of former type while the latter has to be treated with great care keeping in mind about their future growth too.
As such kids do not show themselves up and tend to bottle up their feelings, they should be shown more attention and care as every movement of them has to be watched very carefully. Only when the parents get into their personal circle of the kids could they fathom them well and in fact guide them properly in the future.

Her happiness hormones create an environment of calm and bliss for the baby to grow in. Your baby’s learning and thinking process begins while she is still in the womb.
There’s an incredible, instinctual, mechanism that’s revved up when a baby and the mother are put together. In a foetus these responses seem primitive, but they are responses all the same. While we may be under the impression that the uterus is a quite cosy little place where peace reigns supreme things could not be further away from the truth. Actually, life in the uterus is noisy and unsetting. Mama’s voice resonated deep within, her organs provide their own cacophony of sounds – gurgling, pumping, and beating. This riotous world acquaints the foetus to sounds, tastes and smells. She is already prepared to face the world outside with a distinct personality of her own.
