The brain of a child is always under development. It is in fact, ever evolving. It is due to the development which later leads to curiosity as there comes an age in which a child asks random question whatever he looks around at. A human brain is instinctive of learning. The development of a child’s brain commences even before he starts going to school. A child is a keen observer, looking around at things and trying to figure out their functions. They even listen to various kinds of discussions and contemplate about them.
A child’s development of brain is tentative. It does not necessarily mean that a child’s development of brain has to be according to the background of the kind of family he resides in. It mostly depends on how much time the child spends time with. The influence would surely be taking place.
However, the onus is entirely on parents to undertake the development of their child’s brain. It has to be kept in mind that a child’s brain is under rapid development from it’s birth to the age of three.
The psychologists have charted out that there are four major areas of child’s brain development. Motor(physical), social and emotional, language and communication, and cognitive. The development of the cognitive leads to the development of the brain. It ensures the growth of intellect in a child which involves, thinking, being cynical towards things, learning and problem solving skills.
Skill to develop Child’s Brain
Talking to the baby
The first three years from birth is crucial to the development of a child’s brain. It is often been seen that parents are mostly engaged in “baby-talk” with their children. This is not very healthy whatsoever as it might lead to problems in speech later or might develop problems in pronunciation which might last long. It is recommended to the parents to avoid baby talking and engage into normal conversation with their child. This helps the child to develop his speech, helps him to learn new words and grows confidence in him to speak freely.
It is a tendency, often noticed in adults, not to pay any heed to their children sometimes. This might lead to major consequences later. The child may not be free in the later years, to speak and communicate. This should be avoided as it can then limit the growth of the child’s brain.
Play is the excellent medium parents can employ in order to boost the child’s development of brain. Parents should bring them toys like building the blocks, jigsaw puzzle, abacus and arranging the ring. A child’s psychology gets revelation through such games. The parents should also participate in such games and teach them to arrange the colours, and encourage them to play with the toys in the various ways created by their child. This helps to create space for more imaginative power and creativity.
May it be for elders or children, reading always remains to be an important facet for everyone. Reading contributes to the development of language, it’s proficiency, helps to stock good number of words, helps to refine characters and personality. Reading is an activity which should be mandated for the children specially. They should be taught or should be made to experience the fun of reading. This helps them to grow new ideas. Makes allowance for them to look at the world differently. To add cherry to the cake, it helps them to develop their language skills, teaches them how to write, and refines their speech. The more they would read, the more fruitful it will become in the later years of their lives.
A healthy diet is must in order to boost the brain function of children. This is the reason why there are multiple milk products recommended by the doctor for the toddlers and the nutrition keep varying from age to age. It is a well known fact that healthy food like vegatables, fish and meat keep the organs healthy. The omega3 that is present in fish is actually helpful in proliferating the function of the child’s brain. Oily food and junks mostly lead to accumulation of fat which might also effect the function of the brain.
Children who are active, are healthy. The adage has not become obsolete Only work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy. Children should be taken to parks nearby and should be given the time to play for hours. This should be kept in mind specially in this century as the emergence various kinds of social medias keep has help everyone as the captive audience to it. People cannot resist themselves from being glued to the screens. The children are the easy targets to them. It is very important to engage your children in the outdoor activity. This keeps them physically healthy and keeps their brain function healthy too. Parents should ensure that their children are able to make friends and play with them. The playful activity should be made a part of their daily routine.
A child should be allowed to create it’s own space. This does not resist the parents from taking care of their children or think about their good. But they should be allowed to choose their own books and clothes and should be allowed to wonder about things which seems interesting to them. Parents should not discourage them regarding this. This helps them to grow up with a sense of freedom. They would never hesitate to get involved into important matters. This enables their ability to think along different lines and they can share everything with their parents freely which is important to keep out stress and depression.
There can be nothing wonderful than a child growing up with pets. This helps them to foster fellow feelings for the animal kind which teaches them to treat the animals with kindness and take forward this teaching and spread it in the society.
A child’s development of brain mostly depends on the way parents would nurture it. Parents should groom them to take paths which would lead to their developments. Encouragement is necessary which would teach the children to filter the good and the bad. The allowance should be made for the children to think which is needed to enhance the ability to think and foster maturity. Parents should adopt certain measures mentioned above for healthy brain growth of their children.
