Jet2 Posted January 18, 2008 Report Share Posted January 18, 2008 I was on the plane the other day from Hongkong back to Shanghai. Two seats away sitting a young mother with her months old baby boy. Not long after taken off, he started crying, not very bad but his mom was a bit nervous for may be she did not want to disturb other passengers.I turned to look at the baby boy with a gentle smile. He noticed me and stared at me. He is cute. I blinked my eye to tease him. And then he gave me a lovely smile back in return. So I made face to him and he started giggling... After that during the trip whenever I heard the baby boy started making uneasy noise, I turned to him and doing the same thing. it worked magically.The young mother was very glad that I could offer this unexpected help. The reason I point this out is not saying I own special mind power. Instead I have a question. Before learning language and speaking, does baby have communication power? I guess they do. Just like other intelligent animal such as dophins and dogs. Is it a kind of sixth sense? Or just simply body language?Am I right? The above mentioned story is not a single experience. I have come accross several similar cases. When I play with some babies, they seems to know what I think and response to me. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
