Langage des pleurs

LANGAGE DES PLEURS Un atelier pour les nouvelles mères et nouveaux pères qui permet d’apprendre à ‘décoder’' les pleurs de leur nouveau-né (de la naissance jusqu'à 3 mois). Tous les bébés ont les mêmes 5 pleurs chacun relié a un besoin précis. Imaginez être un nouveau parent et être en mesure de comprendre votre bébé sans jouer aux devinettes (a-t-il soif? est-il mouillé? a-t-il un rot? ressent-il de la douleur?). Cela augmente beaucoup la confiance des parents et aussi de l'enfant, sachant que ses besoins seront comblés.

Cet atelier vous aidera à comprendre les différentes étapes de l'écriture et du des-sin tout en vous offrant de précieux conseils pour encourager et soutenir le développement de la motricité fine chez l’enfant.

Tip of the Day
To help a young child cope with separation from you while at school or on a visit to grandparents, tuck an imaginary kiss into her pocket to pull out when she's missing you, or give him something associated with you such as a special little rock, a broach or a photograph.
