Topic: left-brained vs. right-brained people ?

What a fun exercise in switching brain use. The brain has the power to overcome the limits we perceive in ourselves if we are willing to exercise the time and patience to learn them. Using your brain in balance can be enhanced through using balancing exercises, like juggling, Tai Chi Chuan, yoga, and practicing the use of both hands in daily activities.

Thanks for the neat link.

Topic: Child Language Development and "Babytalk"

Its referred to as IDS, Infant Directed Speech. There is nothing wrong with the use of it, unless it continues beyond the point of its being up to the intelligence of the child. When the child grows beyond it and it is time to raise the bar, it is necessary to drop the old language and develop new. It is not much different from the development of vocabulary or foreign languages. To remain in the use of IDS shows a lack of maturity on the part of the parents/models for the child's benefit. To expect too much of the infantile mind regarding dialog is equally unfair. Teaching is what raising children is about.
