Some people say if you tickle them that it could hurt them or they won't talk right away. Is that true?

Gentle tickling boosts development
by: Heather ;-)


On the contrary, gentle tickling (and I mean GENTLE) can stimulate their brain and encourage development. Touch is extremely important to babies. Study after study has shown that without gentle touch, the brain does not develop correctly. It is an important design that is found only in human babies. That social awareness of being cuddled, played with and touched is vital in healthy brain growth.

However, for babies under 3 months, tickling won't really register. You can tickle those feet all day and get hardly a response. For those early months, close hugs, kisses, rocking, and just being held will provide the necessary brain stimulation.

Gentle tickling is one of the perks of having a baby. Their squeals of joy (as they get older) and excitement melt the heart and bond the soul.

So tickle away!

Security Gear

Security Gear - Before making any purchases, check with your local government to confirm what is possible when it comes to arming your security team. In the United States, this is usually less of an issue than in other countries, but each locality has its own regulations. Established security companies will be up to date on their community’s laws and regulations and will save you the hassle and expenses of security gear purchases, maintenance and training.

I must say that after reading a lot of books that touch is very important for the babies development and especially in brain development. So, It's not right that people normally think about it. There is no link of such talks with the reality. So, You don't worry about it and you touch your babies which is helpful for them. any how, I actually want to find out a best writer who can write my essay but as a women i have read about it which i like to share here.
