Honing in Radar Skills

Honing in radar skills? You ask.

I have recently discovered that small children have a built in radar devise to help them find things, similar to a bat that sends out sounds to tell him where to go.

You haven't noticed?


Listen carefully so next time you will be able to spot it, it goes something like this:

"Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom" walking around the house, into every single room. "Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom." Because they are paying special attention to the "mom" sound bouncing off the walls to help navigate through the house, they are unable to hear the "Yes? I am here, what do you need?" sound coming from the adult, who assumes they are looking for them. This mom sound can get very confused sometimes with the Mom name. It takes a trained ear to dissipher the sounds.

But don't let this fool you, this is only their radar system, looking for a room that feels safe or maybe a toy, or possibly their next bite of food, and they will tune out any calls from someone else trying to guide them, for their systems are new, and they need to personally see how they work and find where they are going by repeating this sound.


The radar also works in waking up other sleeping children, because this radar is set at an audiable level for any young child, which later develops into a high pitch noise that can cause a migraine in any adult. So use wisely young ones.
