Early Childhood and develooping in Brain    Presented by Lynne Malcolm


Subject: All In The Mind

broadcast on 24th  June 2006 – Listen on 27th June 2006


There are two topics in this speech that reporter would like to explor and share to the audiences. It’s about how amazing that a very young children connect with their parents while they haven’t taught to communicate, and discuss the different sex of children would give the different impacts on its connection to their parents. It also illustrates some changes may occurs while children are not connect with their family.  


This program invited Dr Dan Siegal, Mindsight Insititute in Los Angeles, California.

He gave us an example to show us how an early childhood children “communicate” with their parents. Children often found crying would catch their parents’ attention, and stop crying while parents’ satisfly their need.

It’s a connection through the facial and emotional expressions.


However, when children grow up to teenagers or adolescence and start develooping the mind, this natural human interaction reduce. An interesting research has found that female and male children would have the different impacts on their brain.

Female children would be more sensitive than a male children. Sometimes you will probably need to take more times to communicate with a male children than a female.


During this program, Dr Dan Siegal also mentioned that a children with no facial expression or emotion connecting with parents would cause the children to be more isolate to the community.

At the end the reporter also ask about how the offspring children who have no relationship with their adopt family. From the research that Dr Dan found that a family often has a connection while they adopt a children at the beginning. The human interactions could be accustomed as when the relationship grow deeper.


It’s an important topic that we really need to think thoughtfully, cause it affect our family policy and the society as well.


Comment: From the topic I understand more about how interesting that actually we know what others want and satisfy their need without saying.

This  does not only occurs with children and family, it could happen in any in the relation, and people are connected while they know each other well.
