For ten months, lateral incisors begin to appear in babies, which helps the child to chew not only frayed, but also finely chopped or finely chopped food.

As for physical activity, normally a ten-month-old child should:

  • stand confidently without support and outside help;
  • is confidently seated by itself;
  • for a long time to sit straight;
  • self-confidently get up from the sitting position;

But going down from the stairs or the sofa will have to teach the child to you, otherwise it can smash your face. You must show that it is most convenient to go down with your legs down. When your ten-month-old kid understands this, you can not worry about him.

At the age of ten months of the child, there is much to teach. At this age the kid can already meaningfully act with two handles and will gladly repeat for you the most diverse actions and movements that will contribute to the development of his fine motor skills and, as a result, mental activity.

Mental development of

The main activity for a ten-month-old child is, of course, a game. It is playing, he develops both physically and mentally, improves his skills and knows the world. At the age of ten months the child's play changes. If earlier he liked to throw objects and watch them fall, beat them about each other or on the floor, now his games are more aimed at creating. Now the kid not only spins everything, but also tries to create - to collect the pyramid, putting the rings on the rod, making up of the cubes the turret, folding the cups. In this case, the child expects from his actions a certain result and is able to reproduce the actions that he saw a week ago.

However, a ten-month-old kid is not yet able to draw an analogy, generalize his actions and transfer them to other subjects. For example, if you show him how to rock a bear, he will not rock another animal, for example a dog, until you show him that you can do it too. Therefore, show the kid as much as possible actions with toys, expand the "repertoire" of his games, thereby helping him to expand his knowledge of the world.

This does not mean that he ceased to be afraid of them, but nevertheless, he is ready to make contact and tries to "talk" with them in his "language".He likes communication, and he tries to support him in every possible way, not wanting to remain alone.

He has an interest in other children. And although the ten-month-old kid does not know how to play with peers, he aspires to communicate with them, so it is very important for parents to take the baby to the playground, the park and other places of children's walks at this age.

Another important point that speaks about the emotional and social development of a ten-month-old baby is his nascent sense of humor.
