The Right Toys and Games for Your Toddler (2)

>> Dec 18, 2014

I almost forgot to share the other three games that suit your toddler.  So, here they are:

5. Communication Games
Form: chatting on the phone, talking in front of the mirror, looking at books

Benefits: since in the womb, the fetus is trying to listen to the words in native language. At the age of five, children need to be taught to digest the words of the people around him, in various languages, dialects, and intonation.

Encourage your child by continuously taking children to communicate at any time. A study at Harvard University, USA, stated that toddlers who are often involved in the talks, they will show better communication development than children who asked to be silent when parents are speaking. Children are often involved in the conversation may bring up certain topics, and have a lot of vocabulary. Read together and telling stories on a regular basis is also necessary to do.

6. Critical Thinking Games
Form: match the pictures, a guessing playing, make a simple experiment.
Benefits: critical thinking is the ability to grow with age. This ability includes difficult ability that takes time to develop, but toddlers are already able to be taught to think critically.
Support your kid by answering his questions, especially when it starts with the word "Why".

7. Cause and Effect Game and Abstract Concept

Form: snakes and ladders game, kid’s monopoly game, yoyo, simple science experiments, for example, water freezes into ice.

Benefits: recognize the relationship one thing with another thing, and abstract thinking.

When children begin to learn and think, basically they are universal scientist. An experiment on infants aged eight months showed that they've been able to play with numbers. Even children aged 18 months were able to arrange items by categories such as big, small, and colors. Big jump occurs in children aged 2-3 years. With eyes closed, they could mention the items in the room-which previously was shown to him.

Encourage your child to play with all the stuffs in your house, whether it's buttoned jacket or photos on the wall. Your neighborhood offers a variety of playing materials for children, including to learn counting.

Ask kid to learn art, because some of the research results showed that not only monopoly or snakes and ladders games that can sharpen math skills. Art activities such as dancing, singing or painting also hone logical intelligence because there is geometry, causal; draw a line technique, rotating degree, etc.

Allow child to learn from mistakes. From mistakes, your children can learn the causal relationship.


On the Beach

The sea water on Mutun Beach (Lampung Province, Sumatra Island) has no waves, but the kid still afraid to be in the water. Both mom and dad tried to calm him. I actually captured the boat, the family moment was noticed later.


Diarrhea in Toddlers and the Possible Causes

>> Dec 16, 2014

Diarrheal disease in infant turns rank as a second cause of death in children under five, after pneumonia (pneumonia). Although quite common in infants and toddlers, diarrhea is no longer a disease that can be taken lightly.

That's why you need to know the cause of diarrhea, the importance of providing care when children suffering from diarrhea and conduct preventive actions. WHO (World Health Organization), the World Health Organization, explained clearly about the signs of diarrhea, namely defecating in a liquid form that is experienced by more than three times a day, lasts for two days or more.

Diarrhea becomes dangerous when children are often issue liquid stools, causing his lack of fluids or dehydration. These conditions are often the cause of death in young children, especially if the removed fluid containing blood. Discharge of blood means your child's life in danger; the diarrhea condition with such symptoms should immediately get medical help.

Causes of diarrhea in children:

1. Viral infection.
Virus called rotavirus can cause diarrhea. WHO data mentioned that the virus is the cause of 15-25% of diarrhea in children aged 6-24 months.

2. Bacterial infections.
Bacteria such as Shigella, Vibrio cholerae, Salmonella, E. coli is a bacterium that causes diarrhea child. Generally diarrhea caused by bacterial infection is followed by symptoms of seizures and bloody stools.

3. Parasites in the bowel.
Diarrhea can also be caused by microscopic parasites that live in the intestines. Symptoms appear usually flatulence as lots of gas in stomach, and much amount of stinking feces.

4. The use of antibiotics.
If during the use of antibiotics your child has diarrhea, this could be related to the treatment. Antibiotics in the child's body can kill the good bacteria in the intestines. What can be done is to consult a doctor about this. Treatment should not be stopped before the doctor gives approval.

5. Food and beverage.
Child’s stomatch may not have been able to accept food or drink that is different from the usual. The food which is too sour, sweet, spicy or salty could be the cause of childhood diarrhea. In infants, when introduced complementary foods, often a side effect of diarrhea, because his stomach was 'shocked' with a new food or drink.

6. Food allergies.
Food allergy-like egg, soy, peanut, and fish- can cause various reactions, one of which is diarrhea. But it’s usually only a short symptom or just happened a few hours until the consumed food removed from the body.

7. Food intolerance.
In contrast with food allergies, food intolerance is not affected by the immune system. One example of food intolerance is the lactose intolerance because the child’s body is not enough to produce lactose, an enzyme needed to digest lactose. Diarrhea can be one of the symptoms of food intolerance.

Knowing the dangers of diarrhea in toddlers and possible causes can help parents to be more careful, anticipate, and handle it properly.
