To you from us - Vaishnavi

 

Did you know that children develop in so many ways during their first 7 years which is incomparable to what they learn for the rest of their lives?  It took becoming a mom to recognise most of the things that were never taught to us about raising children.  Here are some of the most fascinating things we have learnt together in this family:

 

1.New borns can grasp only high contrast images as it teaches them to focus 

 

2.How children process information is how we learnt to build machine learning. They see all the images, recognise patterns, categorise them, connect them and label them. All these happen in a span of years even before they can fully process speech

 

3.Repetition and pattern recognition are great tools to develop early cognitive skills

 

As a graphic/ designer illustrator, I was just mildly fascinated about child  & brain development when Bhumi was born (2017). But seeing him grow made me realise the potential of what can be taught to a child in the early years that would broaden how they perceive the world around them in the future. They don’t have to rush to read and write, there’s so much more to be done before they even do that. And we never realise the potential of that period. 

 

They listen before they learn to talk, they are always processing information! 

 

This got our entire family to work on something we hold dear. To show children the world around us. They don’t need math and logic to understand love and life. This made us decide to concentrate on revolving everything we create around Life, the universe and nature to put it simply.

 

Wildpaper’s scope expanded as we learned along with Bhumi and now Nakshatra who was born this year (2019). Them and my husband Giri are now the team behind our creations. They help choose subjects, test products and tell me how a design looks and works! This endeavour did great things to our children, and it only felt right to share this with all the tiny ones around the world!
