Seeing With the Mind’s Eye: An Exploration of Visual Attention in Dynamic Scenes – Farahnaz Wick

Experience it here: What we think we see is not always what we see, and this has far-reaching implications for relationships, public safety, crime reporting, witness testimony, and even parenting. How does the brain prioritize among multiple visual stimuli? Farahnaz Wick, a Harvard Medical School cognitive scientist, reveals new insight into human recall of visually dynamic scenes.

Tummy time exercises for your baby // Tummy time exercises for your baby – instructions from Sunnybrook’s Women & Babies Program staff.

When you take your baby home from the hospital, you will have been given instructions to put your baby to sleep on his or her back. But because of this, we need to give the baby opportunities to develop shoulder and abdominal muscles, and to prevent flattening of the back or side of the baby’s head.

Every time you change your baby’s diaper, turn your baby gently over onto his or her tummy. Gently put pressure on his or her bum, and bring his or her elbows in front of the shoulders. This will encourage your baby to lift his or her head. Do this for one or two minutes to ensure good strength of your baby’s shoulder and abdominal muscles.

Learning Basic Parenting Skills

Parenting: Learning Basic Skills – as part of the expert series by GeoBeats.

First, commit to making parenting a priority. As I said to a dad recently, your return on investment is tremendous if you really commit to being a parent and putting your effort there. So, making it a priority means choosing the kids first in whatever situation you possibly can. Second, you want to get a really god parenting book. Look around until you find one that sounds like you and really study what the author has to say.

Third, talk to trusted friends and family members. If they have good advice for you, you’ll be really really happy to carry on conversations on ongoing basis and they might have the same kind of values that you have. But if they don’t, you might want to think about hiring a parent coach.
Third, you might want to go to classes that your school district sets up. Community education often holds really excellent parenting classes and they hire trained people who are skilled in their area to teach those classes so that’s a really really good source of parenting information as well.

And fifth, go inside and ask your inner voice what feels right about taking care of your kids, because really, we hardly ever learn from anybody to trust ourselves in this society, so if you can just think in terms of the fact that you know your child better than anyone else and you are the one who has the most invested in that child then you are with that child the most. You are the expert on your own child so your inner voice has a lot of wisdom for you. It’s a really great resource.
