My child Has His Own Name!

Posted on: August 4, 2011


A child needs to feel identified with his name

Parenthood is certainly not easy and demands quality levels, love and quite a lot of money to be a parent in our current social framework. When talking about baby’s bedrooms, we usually think about expensive purchases involving several items in order to reach the desired bedroom atmosphere. And although as adults we easily accept used presents for our bedrooms, it’s very unlikely for the parents of a newborn to accept used present for their child.

Most parents have very clear the above mentioned topic, as well as the use of the child’s name. If as a mother I decide with my husband to name our child after Matthew, Fillip, Sophia or Giordanna I expect at least two things. First, that my child recognizes its name and feels identified with it, and second that my baby feels identify with its family, as well as its relatives and friends recognize him and call my child by its name.

The former task of relating the child with its name might be exhausting in the presence of nicknames and alias. In the case of Matthew for example, relatives might refer to the child with diminutives like Mat. Furthermore, the task gets more complex when the newborns have siblings of similar ages, and you refer to the sister as ‘her’ and “pot” for communicating with your child named Matthew.

NanyCrafts has recognized the relevance for parents and children of the meaning of a child’s identity through its name, because that name is a title that will carry all its life and by which many behaviors will be determined in its growth and social formation process. For example, is very common that a child asks to its parent: “Mother, why does she have my same name?, Did she copy my name or did I copy hers?” or even more confusing questions such as “Why do I have the same name of the most rude girl of my class? Why does everybody mistake me for that other kid?” Those types of questions are very usual from the age of four, and can generate a big confusion in the children’s identity; plus is the most common cause of low self-esteem in kids.

Acknowledging such situation, NanyCrafts offers unique personalized baby gifts which will enable you to increase the confidence and self-esteem of your children since the moment they are born. And the name process is actually the first step to reach such confidence as names are the first communication bridge between parents and children. Therefore it’s very important that your child listens to its own name, and has the opportunity to use it in different ways, so it will no longer be abstract but it will start making sense and allowing the child to engage in the exiting journey of recognizing itself and its impact within his family and society.

NanyCrafts offers to those parents concerned about the strengthening of their children’s identity, the following recommendations that will help kids to soon feel identified with their names:

  1. As from pregnancy, parents should chose the baby’s name and always mention it in a private parents-baby setting. A great moment to practice this is when touching the mother’s belly.
  2. At the time of birth, the baby’s bedroom should have in different places the name of the baby in flat and in strong colors (white, black, red) in order to enhance the children’s identity.
  3. In children between 0 and 5 years old, parents have to foster their child to draw in its own way its name. In different locations as walls or sheets, and with different materials like play dough, the sand on the beach, paintings and any other elements allowing the kid to develop its motor skills while developing the child’s name identity, and his identity before society.
  4. In children older than 6 years old, the colors white, red and black fade away, allowing the warm colors like blue, green, yellow and orange to gain relevance. The child must itself write down its name on its personal belongings such as notebooks, books and other school implements; in order to restate and consolidate the identification with his name and its personality.

Nany Crafts supports parents and children in this recognition process through name internalization, with articles for all ages and phases of the children.
