• Moving with the help of interception by hands

    The main secret of the way of movement with the help of the hands interception is the rocking of the body. Rocking helps to overcome inertia and facilitates the progress of the body forward. At first, be sure to help the child: swing the baby, slightly holding on to the hips to ensure its safety.

    The new mode of travel must meet three prerequisites:

    • the legs must be completely detached from the ground;

    • The exercise should be performed several times a day;

    • The exercise should bring the child pleasure.

    Exercise 1

    To get to know this exercise, you may need the help of another adult.

    Lift the baby to the crossbar, make sure that he grabs it firmly. Then one adult stands up for the child and starts gently rocking the baby, holding it by the hips. Another adult stands in front and in exact accordance with the movements of the first adult rearranges the child's hands from one bar to the other. Thanks to this, the child will immediately experience the sensations corresponding to the correct actions.

    After a few sessions, the need to stand in front and rearrange the child's hands will disappear - the baby will very quickly understand what is required of him.

    In addition, you can quickly reduce its support. Let each time he maintains most of his own weight, until he learns to move up the stairs completely independently. However, for safety reasons, the baby should still slightly hold it by the waist.

    Warning! When performing this exercise, the adult standing behind should be ready at any time to pick up the child if his hand breaks off the ladder.

    FREQUENCY 10 times a day - movement, 5 times - hovering.

    INTENSITY First, you fully support your child's

    , and then gradually begin to reduce support until he learns to withstand the full weight of his body.

    DURATION Slightly less than the time when it will become boring. Maybe 20 to 30 seconds for one lesson.

    So, the child's skills will be improved, and at this stage it is very important that the child likes to move around the stairs with the help of interception, using the support of the parents. Gradually, the kid learns how to deftly lift small objects with two fingers, and a little later - and with two hands at the same time. From this moment, we can assume that the child has entered the next stage of brain development.

    Indefatigable curiosity will manifest itself in the constant lifting of everything that comes to hand. The size, shape, structure and weight of objects that attract his attention do not matter. Therefore, sometimes he grasps for such items, which simply can not lift.

    Studying unknown items, the child prepares himself for the ability to manipulate different objects. Whether your child can quickly master this intriguing stage depends on how often and variously he can train. Give him the necessary conditions - and the baby will quickly learn with a new stage of development, will reach a high level of manual intelligence.

    Exercise 1

    Give the baby two cartons. In one put a few small items, and leave the second blank. Show your student how to transfer items from one box to another. As the child develops, reduce the size of the boxes until they reach 15 cm2, and accordingly the size of the objects.

    Keep an eye on the baby. As soon as he makes an attempt to keep the box with one hand, but to take out or put different objects on it - for

    you will be signaled that the kid uses both hands to perform a task, with one of the hands being the main one. Watching the child, you easily draw a conclusion, he is left-handed or right-handed.

    Exercise 2

    Fill a small jar or plastic jar with plastic balls and show the child how to "pour" the balls into the box. Instead of balls, you can use other small objects, for example: thread reels, small cubes, walnuts.

    Exercise 3

    Give the child a plastic jar full of nuts. Show the baby how to hold the jar with one hand and remove the nuts from the other.

    Exercise 4

    Teach the baby to pour water from one mug to another. Of course, this is best taught when a child is bathing in a bath.

    So, at this stage of development of manual skills, the child has reached the home stretch, which ends in the fact that he will learn how to move by hand completely independently without resorting to your help and insurance. All the "hard work" has already been done! The rest now depends on how quickly a child learns to withstand the weight of his body and swing himself.

    FREQUENCY 15 times a day to move up the stairs with interception. As many opportunities as possible to lift various objects, put them in boxes and take them out, and also learn how to pour water.

    INTENSITY Maintain the child exactly as much as it can help him succeed.

    DURATION As long as the child needs to walk the length of the ladder.


    Where is it better to be rocking - in front or behind the child?

    It depends on your mutual desire. If you are standing behind, then do not block it;if you are standing in front, you can see the expression of his face and judge whether everything is going well.

    Surely and firmly hold the child

    Child, who is not yet too confident on the stairs, must be protected from falls. It's simpler and more reliable to hold the baby by the waist.

    Follow the child's hands

    If the baby's hands begin to slip, you must hold it tight. In addition, you can tell him when you need to release one crossbar and grab for the second. The child himself must focus on the bars for which he grasps.

    Moving the ladder with interception must be done in a cross way.

    This means that two hands can not be on the same crossbar at the same time. Therefore, it is necessary to encourage the child to quickly grab for the next, free, crossbar.

    At this stage of development, the child must move 15 times a day on the stairs with the help of interception, using your support at only 25%( that is, sustaining 75% of its own weight) and independently grasping the crossbeams. In addition, he must be able to raise various objects with both hands simultaneously.

    So, now your child can lift even the smallest objects, doing this without any effort with both hands alternately or simultaneously. He began to be interested in the contents of various containers: boxes, baskets, jugs, pots, etc. But the most important at this stage is the acquisition of the ability to act with both hands simultaneously. From this moment it will be possible to say with certainty that the child has passed to the next stage of development.
