Your Brilliant Baby in Week 27: Reading Emotions
What your infant learns this week
When you’re feeling an emotion and talking about it, make sure that your face, voice, and words mesh. Baby will be confused if you say that you’re frustrated while using a fake smile. Babies look for consistencies in their world, even in regard to emotional expression. Make conversation about feelings part of your daily parenting routine. By doing so, you’re validating your child’s innate interest in emotions and furthering her intelligence about them.
