Play and Grow Smart-er Tips
Nancy Pyne-Hapke, author of ‘Play and Grow Smart, A Guide Supporting Brain Development, Birth through Five,’ has been giving tips to aid your child’s optimum skill development through proactive neuroscience-based activities every Monday.  These ideas come from scholarly sources to personal interviews, from the internet to periodicals to books.
SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENTAL SKILL DEFINITION: bonding, building relationships, appreciating differences, self-esteem, self-expression, responsibility, self-reliance, resourcefulness.
THE CRITICAL WINDOW during which the circuits of the brain are being most heavily wired for SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL: STRESS RESPONSE development is birth to about 3 years.  The more opportunity children have for positive social-emotional experiences during this critical period, the more efficiently their brains will work over the long run.
— STAY WITH Toddler when someone new is around.  Encourage strangers to approach slowly.  Introduce the stranger by name, and let your child explore someone new in the safety of your presence.
— KEEP DANGEROUS OBJECTS out of your child’s reach and safe ones within it – this minimizes your running around saying ‘NO’ every time he touches something that could harm him.
— SINCE THERE IS emotional security in routines, develop and keep rituals and daily routines, like singing softly while putting her down for a nap, and a bath followed by a book or other quiet activity at bedtime.
— NEAR 3 YEARS, if he throws a doll at his sister because he wants to play with her game, Toddler needs to know why he shouldn’t throw it –  he is learning to be ‘civilized.’  He also needs to know he can’t have what he wants all the time. Say, “Please don’t throw the doll.  It could hurt someone.  You could use blocks to make a house for the doll.  Later you can play the game when your sister finishes.”
