What is Socialization?

Socialization refers to the process by which an individual learns how to function with others.

– To keep track of their toys, babies start to develop what is called object permanence – the awareness that an object still exists even if they can’t see or hear it.

– By 9 months old, some infants may not yet have developed this skill and will believe that the toy no longer exists when it has been hidden from sight. This is why it’s important not to let infants play with something until they lose interest in it – because you never know when they’ll suddenly come back for more (and be upset that you took it away).

– Infants at this age love doing new things. They enjoy watching bubbles rise up off the floor, pouring water into a bowl, helping Mommy put on her shoes, or playing with a new toy.

– They are also very interested in putting things into things – which is why it’s not uncommon to walk by your infant’s playpen and see him/her with two objects (such as blocks) happily banging together at their sides.

– It’s important for babies to explore the world around them, which is why they love to take objects out of containers – but parents need to be aware that what goes in may not come out.

– They also like opening and closing things such as doors or drawers, which helps with developing hand-eye coordination.

– By this age, babies like to look at books because they are filled with bright colors and new shapes. They will also take pleasure in helping turn the pages or chewing on them (although this might be frustrating for parents who attempt to read stories).

– Parents should never leave an infant unattended near a book, as eating can lead to one of the biggest concerns among parents: choking.

– It’s important not to give infants hard or breakable things that they could easily hold in their hands – such as marbles, coins, buttons, beads, paper clips – because these objects pose a threat of leading to choking if they fall out of infants’ mouths while they’re teething.

– If you do give your baby something small that he/she could choke on, make sure to keep the child in your line of sight at all times.

– Babies also like to play with toys that they can bang together or fling through the air. They also like to play with musical instruments – but again, never leave them unattended.

– Parents should also be careful that the instruments they give their babies play music that is at a safe volume – loud enough to hear, but not too loud to cause damage.

– Once babies reach 11 months old, they can begin to crawl and move around much more quickly – although they still need to develop their balance.

– They may also try standing up or walking while holding onto furniture – although this is more likely to happen if they are on carpet or some other surface that gives them better traction.

– It’s important to only put babies on the floor on their bellies – or on their backs if they are being supervised by a caregiver. This will prevent them from falling and injuring themselves (such as hitting their head against a nearby object).

– Parents of infants should also be aware that crawling can lead to all kinds of potential hazards – such as their infant crawling over to reach for a toy that they left on the floor, or crawling into their dog’s crate.
