The “mirror stage” is part of the awakening of the baby. But how can we interpret this picture?
Full recognition of her image changes according to age. Between 2-6 months, he has no idea of his own body, or his identity. It is rather attracted by the reflection of light effects in the mirror. After 6 months, he began to recognize a human face which he can not even identify … quite simply, the playmate in front of him amused or frightened him.
“But how is it that his actions are coordinated with mine?” Is the question that arises baby. He touches the mirror to discover what lies behind. He tries to grab the hand of the image, the kiss … It’s very funny … do not under any circumstances to prevent it is quite a normal gesture to his age.
Until the 18th month, her boyfriend of the ice is always a foreigner, and it is from this age that the revelation begins. He acknowledges with pleasure, but sometimes it is a little disappointed it is not a boyfriend.
