The world through the eyes of a child: baby superpowers

Feeling vremenny one child will not understand the phrase "Time flies". For children time flows much slower than for adults. According to Professor of Medical College at Baylor, Professor David Igelman, this is due to the fact that the child constantly learned something, every day is full of discoveries, even if he does not understand that.

I wonder what floating clouds, the color of passing cars, people's faces. The main thing that the picture does not stagnate, and the movement did not stop. That's why the child cannot sit still – the words "wait" and "patience" not for children's ears.

So if I had to be with the child in a long queue, say, to the doctor, you must take your child to some game and occasionally make a "change of scenery". Otherwise, any waiting will be a real hell for you and for baby. And yet, it is not necessary to expect from children and immediate response. The kids take heard with a delay of 7 seconds.

Trinitrine young children is also dramatically different from the adult. There is a perception that newborn babies see the world upside down. It is not so. According to the laws of optics on the retina it is upside down, but this does not mean that the child sees the world upside down – he still does not understand the image at all, he still has not developed the visual analyzer. Subject vision develops during the first two months. It is associated with Central macular retina, which is also responsible for the perception of colors, mainly yellow-red. That is why at an early age are advised to give a red-yellow toys – they are clearer to the child.

Taste Kids taste is much brighter than adults. The language from an early age are able to distinguish between salty, bitter, sour and sweet. According to Professor Temple University Jennifer Fisher, preference in selection is given to salty and sweet. Including why children do not perceive healthy food: vegetables, fruit, porridge and so on, as taste qualities in these foods are dull and differ from their preferences. Bitter and not at all perceived as a poison.


Single source informaciyu early age, the child, despite a huge reserve of imagination, perceives the world, to some extent, one-sided. A group of British psychologists from the University of London, and a group of Italian psychologists from the University of Florence, found that children up to 8 years perceive information from only one of the senses. They are still not able to compare data about the world, supplied from different sources: smells, sounds, tactile information, as it does an adult.

Psychologists from Italy suggested subjects to children from 5 to 10 years and adults is two dice, the task was to determine which of the blocks more, and you could either touch or look at a cube, or all together. The experiment showed that more successful with the task coped adults and children over 8 years. Children up to 8 years showed the same result regardless of the method.

British psychologists conducted an experiment with children aged 4 to 8 years and older. The subjects were asked to take a toy rocket, the, "fill" fuel, to land passengers, to countdown from 10, and return the rocket to its original position. The experiment was carried out in two different conditions. First in the room turned off the light, and focus the subjects were offered in three luminous objects in the shape of a moon, stars and lightning. In the end, adults were approximately 26 cm from the starting point, and the children twice. The second time, in one case, the researchers removed the glowing landmarks, and the second unraveled the subjects in the chairs. Thus, in one case, they could only use the sense of space, and the other with only use orientations.

In the end, the results of adults has deteriorated markedly compared to the first part of the experiment, and children under 8 years has not changed. This suggests that children choose one source of information and use it, without taking into account additional information from other sources.published
