The Pikler triangle is an excellent training toy for the motor development of babies and the early years of children. This evolutionary toy also reinforces the imagination and stimulates playfulness.
The Pikler triangle was an invention of the pediatrician Emmi Pikler, who observed that when babies have freedom of movement, they also stimulate their integral development.
Pikler followed precisely the development of the babies and concluded that the sense of freedom allows them to reinforce the sense of self-care in the face of danger and autonomy.
The Pikler triangle is designed to stimulate the development of muscles and strength. The baby will soon learn to touch its bars and then discover the power of the hold.
Then he will learn to discover the use of his hands and feet, and as he grows up you will see how he learns to hold on, stand up, take his first steps and climb.
Principles That The Pikler Triangle Stimulates In Your Baby
Emmi Pikler promoted four principles in implementing this evolutionary toy in babies and children, so know a little more about them and how you can promote them in your little one.
Respect Your Child
Emmi Pikler considered it important to let babies and children discover their world from their own possibilities.
Babies are capable of discovering and learning from their own experience, and that is why she considered it necessary to provide them with spaces for playful learning.
In the first months, your baby will surely see only the Pikler triangle, but Ponto will be attracted by touching it, and according to his possibilities he will explore it.
Stimulate Their Fine Motor Skills
When babies and children have space, they can have total freedom of movement. This makes it easier for them to discover and manage their own abilities.
A guided baby will learn what you teach him/her. Things such as how to hold your hand to walk, to move when you give him/her a signal. A baby with freedom will discover how to move and use their limbs and keep looking for more possibilities.
With the Pikler triangle, he will soon be sitting down with the help of his limbs and will continue to discover as he progresses in his development.
Helps To Stimulate Emotional Bonding
Emmi Pikler considered that while it is important to encourage autonomy and self-confidence in the baby, that does not mean cutting the emotional ties.
Comprehensive communication is necessary, as well as attention and pampering, making the baby feel safe on the path of self-discovery.
Stimulate your child with a complementary or understanding look. A hug or other expressions are useful too. This will help them know you support them so they conquer new goals in the Pikler triangle.
It Encourages Safe And Stable Development
In the process of discovery, the baby must have a stable atmosphere so that he can feel safe and develop.Provide a safe and pleasant environment so that the baby can develop. Place the Pikler triangle in a comfortable area and keep it in that space. Your baby knows the routine and will gradually add to it.
