Twins in the Classroom [Infographic]

0

Posted by Good Infographics | Posted on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 | Posted in , ,

If you think you’re seeing double, you’re right. The rate of twin births in the U.S has skyrocketed—rising 76 percent from 1980 through 2009 and still rising. As more twins enter school every year, teachers and parents work together to create the best educational environment for multiple-birth children. The most basic question that arises among parents and teachers when twins enter school: Should twins be placed in separate classrooms or allowed to be in the same class? Compelling arguments abound on both sides of the issue. Some experts and parents feel that because of the strong bond most twins develop, it could be traumatizing to separate them during the school day. Others believe that separating twins allows them to foster a stronger sense of self identity. A solution that works for one set of twins won’t necessarily work for another.

While some school districts have policies forbidding the placement of twins in the same class, others don’t. A law was passed in North Carolina last year leaving the final decision of whether or not to place twins in the same or different classes up to the parents, and other jurisdictions have similar laws in place. Some parents still don’t have a choice when considering whether or not their twins should be placed in separate classes, but for those that do have a choice, there are some key points to take into consideration.

Will Your Baby be Super-Smart? [Infographic]

Posted by Good Infographics | Posted on Wednesday, October 24, 2012 | Posted in ,

You might watch them drool on themselves and play with their Cheerios and wonder what in the world is going on inside the brain of a baby. But in fact, there is probably a lot more going on in there than you might initially think. The first few years of life are critical developmental years for children as the baby’s brain doubles in size in the first year of its life and studies have shown babies are capable of picking up on basic physics and even basic human emotions.

 But don’t make the mistake that, as parents, you can’t do anything to foster your baby’s intellectual development. While obviously some babies get their smarts from their parents, the parents can help foster that growth by staying aware of the baby’s environment, how much time it spends in front of a video screen, and how often you are interacting and stimulating him/her. Want to know if your baby is going to be a genius? Trying to figure out how to avoid hurting the baby’s brain development? Learn more about baby intelligence.
