How you help your baby understand the cause-effect relationship

I have the power to change my world!

Did you know that your child is beginning to understand the cause - effect from the first months of life?

New experiences

Bogdan, 9 months, discovered the power of the remote control. It seems to understand that there is a connection between pressing the buttons on the remote control and the operation of the TV. He recently started asking for the remote control and when he has it in his hand he starts to press the buttons. Her face lights up with a smile of joy as she watches the images change on the TV.

Laura, 6 months, likes to stay in the tub. Lying on her back and holding her mother, she studies the effects of her movements on the water. He particularly likes to stand up and see the water jumping and splashing in all directions.

These babies are beginning to understand the connection between cause and effect. They see that there is a connection between their actions and the world around them and they are beginning to realize that interesting things can happen. This relationship is deeply understood around the age of eight months, but babies may have opportunities to examine it even earlier.

The baby is investigating

As the understanding of the cause-effect relationship deepens, the baby becomes a true investigator and experimenter. Look at a seven-month-old baby playing with a toy. You hold the toy, move it, push it, try to crush it and do many other things to see what happens. If you get obvious results from a toy, it will try to repeat the experience, improving its understanding of the connection between the action and its effect.

Developing this ability allows the baby to understand the laws that govern various events that he observes in the environment. This important intellectual achievement allows him to plan his actions and gain more control over his own actions. It also increases the baby's desire to explore and learn the logic behind the things he sees, hears and feels.

How you help your baby understand the cause-effect relationship

When your baby is about three months old, try to place him on his back, on a mattress, for activities with toys suspended above his head. The movements of the hands will change gradually - from some random ones to some deliberate and controlled ones - as they learn to hit and shake the toys suspended above it. This will help to establish in the baby's brain between what the body does and what it sees around.

From six months, the baby will be ready to enjoy activity centers. These are toys that your baby can do different activities and from which he receives a clear answer about them. For example, when the baby pulls a handle, a sound is heard, when handling a fabric, a whispering sound is produced and when a button is pressed, another cute and small toy suddenly appears in a box. These interesting and unequivocal answers will encourage the baby to try again and again, deepening the understanding of the cause-effect relationship.

Make it a habit to allow your baby to explore the environment in which he lives in order to see the results of his actions.

Understanding the link between cause and effect is an important achievement, a milestone for the intellectual development of the baby. Imagine how difficult it was for your baby to be in a situation of uncertainty, in a world where things are happening without any fuss. In recent months, you have introduced logic into the baby world. You will gradually learn to make connections between things that are happening and will be able to anticipate future events. This ability will make the world more stable, more predictable and more pleasant.
