Base your games on current research and tasks from the Brazelton Scale.Dear New Parent,Based on current research and tasks from the Brazelton Scale, I would like to recommend games to play with your new baby. These games will reveal the perceptual abilities of the baby. Read books to the baby with simple black and white pictures. Repeat the book checking the baby’s responses to your voice and the pictures in the book. Have a rattle for the new baby.
Play with the rattle and check the baby’s response to the rattle. Reading a story to the baby will also check its response to inanimate visual and auditory stimuli. Play peek-a-boo with the baby.
This will test the defensive movements of the baby (place your hands over the baby’s eyes as well). As the baby grows older, you can read more visually stimulating books. Eventually, you need to let your baby make its own gaming decisions.

Discuss the pros and cons of this.I don’t believe society is to blame for our being rushed through childhood and slowed during adolescence. I believe it seems this way because childhood is very stress-free and light-hearted.
This is a time of play and imagination. Adolescence is a very stressful time. This is when we begin to find ourselves. Our bodies and minds change as we enter puberty.
We begin to have difficult tasks in our schools as well as difficult relationships with our peers. Pressure from society and our peers begins to come to us. It is simply a time of overwhelming burden.
This is why adolescence is prolonged vs. childhood.Pros:-have more time to find ourselves-are under the care of our parents for a longer period of time-during this stressful time, there are mentors available at almost all times-the transition into middle, high, and college education all occur during this timeCons:-we are underestimated by society-society seems to think if we are between 11-19, we are “bad”-we lose our ability to play freely like a child-we gain the stresses of adulthood before we are prepared for them Words/ Pages : 675 / 24
