  • Babies in my country Ethiopia don’t watch TV and their parents keep them on their body the whole day and sleep with them at night on the same bed and when you compare them with the baby’s who grew up watching TV and sleep on their own bed they’re seem to be more intelligence and capable of making sense. Because thy see what their mothers are doing and hearing what they saying while they are babies. So they do the something when they grow up. Because babies do the same thing that they saw their parent doing. The reason why I pick this topic is because there are a lot parents that don’t know the effect of watching TV on babies. And this is important to me because I have babies sibling and I want them to be smart and intelligence. Everybody should care about this because all parents want to raise a smart baby but thy don’t know how so they should just read this PowerPoint and get everything they need to raise a smart baby.

  • Why parent think TV is good for babies

Some parent might say watching TV for babies is good because the baby might stop crying when you turn on the TV. But According to the website ” I heard a lot of parents say but my baby likes it infants may stare at the bright colors and motion on a screen  but their brains are incapable of making sense or meaning out of all those bizarre.” “Why to Avoid TV for Infants & Toddlers.” This quote is saying that all the color on the screen make the baby unable to make any sense. Because all the light and picture is preventing their brain from developing the right way.

  • Parent should feed their baby breastmilk

Feeding your baby breast milk makes your baby intelligence because according to  the website psychology it says “Breastfeeding encourages right brain development, the source of social emotions and practical intelligence. Breast milk fosters more efficient function=more intelligence.” “how-grow-smart-baby” This quote is saying that breast milk makes the baby to develop the right brain and social emotions. And the baby becomes intelligence because he or she is drinking natural milk and natural milk is always the best. when you breast feed your baby he/she is looking at you and not on the TV. So that helps them recognize a real people.

  • Sharing Sleep with your baby
  • Sharing sleep with your baby help the baby develop mutual regulation. Because according to this book by Buckley, Sarah J. it says “ sharing sleep has been a necessity for infants survival, giving babies not only a safety from predators but also warmth, easy access to mother’s breast, and assistance with function and maturation of developing bodily processes through mutual regulation.” Gentle birth, gentle mothering” so this quote is telling us how important share sleep is to the babies mind. Because when you sleep with your babies they find everything they need next to them and they feel comfortable. This relates to watching TV because When you share sleep with your baby he or she is feeling and seeing a real person, as suppose to watching TV they see toys and confuse their mind.
  • Conclusion

So if parent want to raise a smart baby the one and the easiest thing they can do is keep their babies away from watching TV. And they should feed them breastmilk and share sleep with their babies. And they should play at their level like playing with them on the floor and on the bed. And this proves my report because I have all my source in my reference page.
