Do You Tickle Your Child? After Reading This You`ll NEVER DO IT AGAIN!
Dear Parents, when you tickle your child experience for them is not exactly as you would imagine. According to research, babies younger than 4 months without a tingling feeling of direct connection that feeling that comes from you.
When adults tickle the hands or feet of children, children usually make a mistake in identifying the sources of sensations. It irritates the sensory their senses in a negative way.
All in all, younger babies perceive touch as a touch on the body, and not in relation to what they are seeing, hearing, or smell. The research team wants to conduct further research why and how babies develop a sense of self in the world and the implications for the understanding of the baby.
I also have friends who report that their young kids love playing a tickling game with them. But the children get to say how much and when to stop. The young people are fully in charge of what happens to their bodies, as they should be.
That’s very different from the “fun-loving” parent, uncle, cousin, sibling or friend holding a child down and deriving almost sadistic pleasure from watching him squirm and struggle. At that point, the word tickling has been just a euphemism for domination and abuse. And the laughter—that the child emits uncontrollably—somehow condones it. As in, Look at him laugh! He must be having fun!
If you have no idea what I’m talking about then you were most likely never on the receiving end of this kind of tickling. You were never held under a blanket while your older cousins tickled you until you thought you would suffocate. You were never pinned down by one sibling while the other dug his fingers into your armpits, leaving you breathless and, eventually, in tears.
