What is this baby learning?

This is a fantastic experience that has swept the You Tube world and I want to add to this experience why this is so wonderful.

Look at the material being explored here!!!! A piece of paper. A simple material that we would not have looked twice at and certainly not considered this to be a toy to experience. It’s not your fancy Baby Mozart, all in one toy, to supposedly increase brain IQ. It is simply a piece of paper.

Yet, this experience that has captured the hearts of many for good reason!!!!! This baby and daddy’s brain are in full swing learning. Learning, like so many other episodes that happen to family’s everyday experience, that we forget to see the power of learning with… Ah… a great piece of paper!!!!!!

Relationship building Reading social cues, both by the baby and the father.  Cause and effect experiences.

Visual reading. The baby is reading the look on the father face and responding
Science and math variables (this could go on forever)
Art of playing games
Experiencing a supporting environment
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Reciprocation
Connecting the experience to reaction and relation
Building language
Turn taking
Acceptance
Role Playing
Mimicking and role play
How to Play
Trust
Experiencing a sense of humour
Crossing the midline of brain hemispheres

Feel free to add in a thought or two.

We have shared this incredible experience with this family. We have explored the “extra” in the “ordinary” moments of play. This is what Extraordinary Beginnings is based on.

NO TOY CAN REPLICATE THIS KIND OF BRAIN STIMULATION!!!!!!!!!
