They also observed that babies whowere not held and did not receive attention failed to grow, became depressed, and eventually died. On theother hand, many studies have shown that loving, hugging, interacting and playing with your child all havehas a strong effect on developing his intelligence. The loving connection formed between you and yourkid and your one-on-one interaction with him provide the foundation for his higher thinking skills.Play with your child---meaning both of you are HAVING FUN!
