Things not to do when taking care of a baby

These behaviors are harmful to your child's mental health:

Ignore it:

Newborns have an innate predisposition to communicate with mom, dad and relatives. Even if they cannot speak, they use different non-verbal methods (such as sign language) to express their needs. Some mothers begin to bond with the baby while he is still in her womb by singing, reading, and talking to him regularly.
Babies born prematurely may require special attention. So it is important that you are alert and try to understand the baby's signals.

Leave him alone:

Children are always looking for company; They do not understand why they are alone and fear being marginalized. It is very likely that their isolation will affect their behavior and relationships in the future; either he will be edgy or quiet and closed in on himself, and in either case, it is a cause for concern.

Punish him:

Corporal punishment may vent parents' frustration, but, like most aggressive actions, it has negative effects on the child in the long run.
Building a good relationship with your child is essential for his happiness and psychological health, and it will have positive repercussions on his behavior at school and on his social relationships. Caring for a child also means respecting his individuality and providing the necessary emotional support.

Leaving him crying:

It is important not to let the baby cry for a long time. Young children find it difficult to stop crying. They can make a habit of crying. Not responding to your child's distress call for a long time can affect the synapses in their brain.
To prevent the child from crying, you must pay attention to the non-verbal signals that the children give (frequent movement, frowning, moving hands), and thus try to calm them down.
