Session A: Parents
Child aged 5-12 months has experienced the most significant developmental milestones in his life. In these short months, the child has not only learned to stand up, sit, crawl, stand, and even walk such gross motor development. He also begins to grasp and release with the whole hand, two or three fingers grasping, and other fine motor developments. During this time, the child also started the so-called "Self-weaning" and slowly tried various food in various forms. At the same time, he begins to interact with people around them, such as smiling and waving. Some child even starts to speak a few words.
Because each child's developmental milestones happen at different paces, the various required items and prepared environments introduced here are designed for the development stage rather than the child's specific age month.
For children aged 5-12 months, positive and high-quality responses from parents or primary caregivers to the baby's needs are the cornerstone of a child's sense of security and attachment.
Child aged 5-12 months starts to like social interactions. He will smile and wave at people intentionally, clap their hands because they are happy, and even begin to understand what "no" means. He likes to play peek-a-boo games with mom and dad or the primary caregiver, and he also started to experience separation anxiety with his mom and dad or the primary caregiver.
During this period, parents or primary caregivers need to respect and respond positively to their child's needs. For example, before changing diapers, they should respect the child and talk to him gently before the changing starts: "Dear, your diaper is wet; therefore I will need to change your diaper."; Before leaving the child's sight, tell the child where you are going and when you will be back. It is also necessary to pave the way for the child's "independence"; for example, help the child learn to eat, sleep, and walk independently.
Acknowledge that the child is an independent individual and respects him. Giving the child positive responses to his needs and preparing the needed environment for each development stage are the most important tasks for parents or primary caregivers during this period (5-12 months).
