Your Child's Self Awareness is Now Increasing

Your Child's Self Awareness is Now Increasing

At this stage, your child's psychological growth is happening as much in full swing as his physical development. Self-awareness is arguably the most fundamental issue in psychology, from both a developmental and an evolutionary perspective. When do children become aware of themselves as differentiated and unique entities in the world? When and how do they become self-aware?

What you need to know

The general idea is that prior to the expression of explicit self-awareness such as self-recognition and self-identification in a mirror or a photograph, infants from birth manifest an implicit sense of themselves. You will also notice an important change at around 2 years of age when children manifest ‘‘self-consciousness,’’ the so-called secondary emotions such as embarrassment or pride in very specific situations such as mirror exposure or competitive games.

This is a vital and positive stage of development as your child becomes conscious about their own identity and you must always encourage it.
