Extension report I I Carrie Olson, County Extension Educator FOSTERING CREATIVITY Artists, poets and interior designers are not the only people who are creative. If you have paused for several minutes and observed your young child, you have seen some fine examples of creative behavior. Remember the time your son or daughter...got into the chocolate pudding and smeared it around on the kitchen counter?...made designs on the bathroom wall with a bar soap?...or, figured out a way to get to the neighbors without your knowing about it? Chances are you would like to forget these events, but they are indications that your child is creative. We should not think of creativity only as a quality possessed by artists. Being creative means thinking, experiencing or accomplishing something in a new, unusual or original way. Creativity is not limited to times when a child paints, scribbles or makes something out of pla.ydough. Children who develop an entire story about one of their stuffed animals are being creative. So is the child who spends hours trying different ways to stack their blocks. II Because creativity is a quality that all children will need as they mature and reach adulthood, encouraging children to be creative in a number of different ways is an important job. In fact, being able to solve a new problem largely depends on the creative skills of the person A young child becomes creative by being creative tirst in small ways. Everyday play and happenings around the home offer thousands of these opportunities. When the child wants to help dust the room floor or furniture she may try some new way of waving the dust cloth around. Unless he is causing a real dust storm or is about to knock over a lamp, let him go. He is only exploring the environment. Other considerations for fostering creativity include: * Allowing the child freedom to explore and try new things. * Encouraging the child to do original and imaginative thinking. * Being curious and expressing our curiosity to the child through statements or questions which begin "I wonder why..." or "What would it be like to.. I * Telling the child it is OK to express feelings. * Pointing out and encouraging the child to point out interesting things. * Helping children develop confidence in their ability by continually telling them how well they do. * Avoiding the urge to always tell or show the child how to do Dr. Gregory J' Peterson" Specializing in Back, Neck and Extremity Care for the Entire Family.

Amazingly, infants are born with the capacity not just to learn language, but to learn all languages. As researcher Patricia Kuhl of the University of Washington put it, infants are "citizens of the world." When babies are born, they are able to perceive the different sounds and patterns of speech. For example, at birth, although only the "r" sound exists in Japanese, Japanese babies can hear both the 'T' sound and the "r" sound. Between the ages of 6 months 12 months they "lose" the ability to hear the 'T' sound. As infants grow and gain experience in their native language, they become "socialized" to the language sounds they hear each day. However, at young ages, children still have the ability to learn multiple languages easily because their brains remain primed for language learning until around the age of 1. Additional research has shown that when parents talk frequently with their infants and toddlers, children's language skills are stronger. And parents who tend to talk with their children a lot also tend to have warm, supportive relationships with them. Attachment/social and emotional development The roots of security, empathy and intimacy are laid down during the first years of life, and are cultivated through children's relationship with their primary caregivers. The key factor in the formation of secure parent-child attachments is sensitive, responsive, consistent care from a primary caregiver. As infants and children are take on and master challen relationships with others with life's inevitable conflicts. Early brain research us that the formation of attachment between primary and child helps brains neural pathways that are learning to control em to others. We have also experiencing stress and the infant and toddler negative effect on brain physiology, and that a attachment can help buffer toddlers from the harmful stress has on their brains behavior. The recent findings from reinforce a message t] relationships infants and with adults strongly affect all of their development.
