The article informs that using a mirror is a great way for a child to learn about himself. The parents should place an unbreakable mirror on the side of an infant's crib, so he can turn and gaze into it. When the child is three to six months old, the parents may make the child sit in their lap, facing away from the parent so that both can see each other in the mirror. The parents can do different playful activities in front of the mirror to see if the child imitates.
