Psycho-emotional development of

At this age, the baby is already quite clearly visible certain character traits. Mental development of children is manifested in interaction with other people, in dealing with various subjects, in what classes they choose for themselves. Parents need to be attentive to the personality of both the boy and the girl.

A child at 10 months constantly babbling. And although while his speech is incomprehensible to adults, sometimes he is already beginning to deliberately pronounce simple familiar words( "Mom", "Baba", "Lala").These attempts should be encouraged and strongly promoted the development of speech in the child:

  1. To supplement the passive vocabulary, i.e. To pronounce the names of all the surrounding objects.
  2. Generate an active vocabulary, encouraging the child to repeat new words and sounds that he does not yet pronounce.
  3. Constantly draw the attention of the child to the surrounding phenomena of nature.
  4. When naming objects and phenomena, use monosyllabic simple sentences that are easier to remember.

It is very important not to lisp, but to clearly pronounce all the sounds and words so that the child can hear the correct pronunciation. On this depends largely on what will be the speech of your crumbs.

Games and actions with objects

Having reached 10 months of life, the child learns classes that are different in purposefulness and awareness. He no longer just grabs and throws objects. Previously, he only pulled the toys out of the box, and now he tries to fold them back. If you give him a set of cubes, he enthusiastically begins to make them one on top of another and build turrets.

Tiny tries and more complex actions - for example, he not only sets the doll in the machine, but tries to roll it. If you encourage the kid praise for every achievement, it will inspire him to new discoveries.
