What Babies Say Before They Can Talk : The Nine Signals Infants Use to Express Their Feelings
How many times have you held your fussing or crying baby and thought, "Come on, please tell me what's going on with you!"
Well, your infant does tell you.
In What Babies Say Before They Can Talk, Paul C. Holinger, M.D., M.P.H., a psychiatrist and psychoanalyst who has been studying children and their emotions for more than twenty-five years, explains how infants communicate with us, and we with them.
Dr. Holinger decodes the nine easily identifiable signals -- interest, enjoyment, surprise, distress, anger, fear, shame, disgust (a reaction to bad tastes), and dissmell (a reaction to bad smells) -- that all babies use to express their needs and wants. These insights will aid parents in discerning what their baby is feeling. This book can help all parents become more confident and self-aware in their interactions with their children, create positive communication, and put the joy back into parenting.
This is a unique work. It provides a foundation for understanding feelings and behavior. Based on emerging research, What Babies Say Before They Can Talk offers parents a new perspective on their babies' sense of the world and the people around them. The goal of this book is to help parents enhance their infants' potential, prevent problems, and raise happy, healthy, responsible children.
UNHCR News Story: Talk of new xenophobic violence in South Africa has refugees on edge

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, July 6 (UNHCR) – Dolebo Debisto, an Ethiopian refugee restaurateur in Duduza Township near Johannesburg welcomes me in true African style. Shoulders hunched respectfully, face radiant as if welcoming a long lost relative, my outstretched hand is engulfed in a handshake filled with warmth.
His resolve to continue business as usual belies the fear welling within. Rumors there will be an outbreak of xenophobic violence when the World Cup football tournament ends later this week have resurfaced and Debisto has good reason to be anxious. He was one of 150,000 people to be targeted during a wave of attacks on foreigners in 2008 that left over 60 people dead.
Debisto found refuge in one of the government-run temporary safety sites, created with the support of UNHCR. The safety sites, which were located primarily in South Africa's major cities, were gradually shut down as the government, UN agencies, and human rights organizations worked to reintegrate refugees and other foreigners into sympathetic communities.
"After the safety sites closed in 2009, Debisto became something of a fixture in our office," recalls Josephine Namata of Jesuit Refugee Services (JRS), a partner agency of UNHCR. "He was desperate and always close to tears. Seeing him like that broke my heart."
Debisto had only recently married when the xenophobic attacks began in May 2008, forcing him to abandon his former life for the protection of a safety site. By the time the sites were shut down some 10 months later his young wife had given birth to twin daughters and the family had no where to go.
"I had no place of my own, no income and nothing to feed the babies," says Debisto his face clouding over with the memory. Separated from his extended family and the support they would have normally provided, Debisto, his wife and their children sheltered in a room provided by a fellow Ethiopian.
Through a UNHCR-funded income generation scheme run by Jesuit Refugee Services, Debisto was able to rent a small grocery store in the township. Using the profits from the store, he opened a Ethiopian restaurant adjacent to his home. The restaurant attracts a steady stream of customers drawn from the community of 200 Ethiopian refugees living nearby. For them, a meal of vegetables and meat placed artfully on the large surface of Injira, the staple flat bread of Ethiopia, offers a taste of home.
But Debiso is aware that the restaurant's popularity also makes it a potential target for those determined to rid the township of foreigners.
"We're know how real the threat it is," he says. Sympathetic South Africans are also hearing the rumours. Debiso recounts the advice given by a South African woman he describes as a "friend of refugees. She approached us and begged us to be out of the township when world cup is due to end – for our safety."
Duduza Township is infamous for being the first community in South Africa where a burning tire was placed over an alleged apartheid informer at the height of the country's fight for liberation.
I can recall as a young child watching with revulsion and horror when the incident was shown on national television. Decades later I would watch a similar scene play out once again on TV at the height of the 2008 xenophobic attacks.
With the World Cup in its final days, many foreigner nationals, particularly those from Mozambique and Zimbabwe are leaving the country. Newspaper reports tell of people from neighbouring countries sending their belongings home. For refugees and asylum seekers returning home is not possible.
South Africa's Minister of Police, Nathi Mthethwa, has gone on record warning would-be attackers that, "violence for any reason against foreign nationals resident in the country will not be tolerated."
"Responsibility for the protection of refugees and the maintenance of law and order rests with the government,' says Sergio Calle-Norena, UNHCR's Deputy Regional Representative. "But we are prepared to assist should the government request our support."
Debiso, who recently removed a scribbled but untraceable note from his front door ordering foreigners to leave the township, "or else…", says he and other refugees remain hopeful that rumours of violence will turn out to be just that.

Multan to Milpitas 6 When I became a Mother
ABout picture: This picture was taken when Muawiz was three days old and we were taking him to hospital for his first visit or may be when we were coming back from hospital ( Iralyy don't remeber exactlyD:)
Any ways when I became a mother or when I was going to be a mother no one said, "Hey your kids will leave you at age of 18 you have to take care of yourself and start your life don't think to have a baby( Like now I ahev heard from many:D)
That was Muawiz’s first Visit to hospital I think third day. When I became a mother on April 25, 1997. A South Indian nurse in Kaiser asked me why next day you are going to home. Your insurance can cover two more days. You will not be able to have rest at home. I said I just want to go home because father of the child was in trouble to come to the hospital and I also want to talk to my family on the phone. (At that time we did not have any cell phone.) She said, “You can use phone in hospital.” I think how thin and with huge black circle around my eyes was asking her to advise me.
Like that. At the end she shrugged and said, “This is the only case a mother is willing to leave hospital that early usually women insist to stay more because they know at home they can’t rest:D.”
Any ways what I have remember when I arrived in America on September 22 1995 Ah just two days ago was 15th Anniversary. I did not receive any flyer by authorities on Air port that I am entering in a country where jobless mothers don’t have any respect in the eyes of court and society as well. JOB is the only way can prove a mother a best mother otherwise you are nuts and not credible.
I became pregnant not a single doctor, nurse or any other friend warned me that I have to think before becoming a mother that my kids will left me alone when they will be 18 years old so I have to have a job instead of taking care of my kids having a job and giving them in someone else’s cars is a real *karnama* As I have heard after divorce “hey you must have time for yourself, kids will leave you when they will be 18 better you have to think about yourself. ” So in this country where Al Gore is worried about habitat of bugs and beetles and giving speeches to save our planet we have to save endanger species. There is no speech about a mother’s relation a mother’s lap is important for a human child too. I just visited California State website and was laughing out loud when I found AUGUST was child support awareness month LOLz and what governor is saying there my opinion is totally different then that. I am saying IF A MOTHER”S JOB IS IMPORTANT THEN HER CONTACT TO HER CHILD THEN DON”T ALLOW A SINGLE MOTHER TO BECOME A MOTHER UNLESS SHE SHOULD HAVE JOB AND AGREED TO PUT OR PLACE HER CHILD IN A DAYCARE.
Must have implanted a chip in a girl’s body as she born so she must not be pregnant unless she is agreed to having a job and giving her child in care of someone else.
And yes 18 years is age usually kids can go in their own way but in a divorce case she must be ready to leave them whatever age they are.
My sister was saying no not in girl's body but in Boy's body chip must implant because if a woman will have sexual relations with multiple guys she will be pregnant only once BUT if a man will go to multiple women he can make pregnant each and every woman.So we need to pay attention to invent a chip can stop fertility so we should not give a human child hard time in this world:D
I am serous people;)
when will baby talk
Parents profoundly influence their child’s language development, including their ability to listen, understand, and communicate. From birth to three years is the crucial window of opportunity during which a child’s learning potential is at its fullest and most formative. Now with this amazing book, parents can use the revolutionary BabyTalk program to maximize their baby’s language skills– and provide a solid foundation for later learning–in just thirty minutes a day!
A simple and fun one-on-one program created by a renowned speech and language therapist, BabyTalk is based on extensive clinical experience and is firmly rooted in natural parent-child interaction. What’s more, it fits into the normal pattern of your child’s play! You’ll discover how to best talk to your child–and what to talk about–at each stage of development, including how to
• CREATE an environment in your home that most benefits your baby’s development
• NURTURE your child to become a confident communicator
• STRENGTHEN his or her ability to concentrate and retain information
• STIMULATE your child with specific toys and books at each stage
• RECOGNIZE problems that may hinder language development
• PRESENT games, play ideas, and words to stimulate the imagination
Use BabyTalk to give your baby a lifelong advantage for learning!
Grownups don't like being corrected, scolded, or peppered with silly questions (or sillier requests), so why would babies? Yet babies get it in both ears, all day long: "No, no! Mustn't touch! Say 'apple', not 'apppppft!' What does the piggy say? Tell Mommy what the piggy says!"
Speech and language therapist Dr. Sally Ward concludes that not only do infants and toddlers dislike such talk, they can also suffer from too much of it--just as much as children who don't receive enough verbal stimulation. In the process of creating an intervention program to help kids with existing language problems, Ward and colleague Derdre Birkett also discovered that these BabyTalk techniques could actually prevent language problems from ever developing. The prescription: 30 minutes of your undivided attention a day, where baby's job is to explore and your job is to provide a quiet environment, age-appropriate commentary, game playing, and sensory stimuli.
Ward organizes her clinically supported recommendations by age group, starting with the birth-to-3-months crowd and concluding with 4-year-olds. Each chapter covers an age group's typical physical and mental development, as well as language recognition and use, listening ability, and attention span. As Ward goes on to detail appropriate playtime activities, she often reminds readers to avoid disruptive patterns of questioning, correcting, and scolding. Better to offer simple comments and lots of sound effects, and to repeat your baby's utterances, than to launch into wordy descriptions. Throughout the book, Ward expertly adds a documented study here, an anecdote there, to cinch her case for quality one-on-one time. Never stuffy and only slightly motherly (the author likes the phrase "your little child"), BabyTalk provides encouraging words and proven tools for building a solid learning foundation. --Liane Thomas
