These are very basic 5 FAST FACTS ABOUT our CHILD’S BRAIN, and we forget them often, Don’t We?

1. CHILDHOOD IS KEY.The brain makes the most connections among its cells before your child turns 10. This is also the time when she/he learns language best.
2. THE BRAIN BUILDS ITSELF BASED ON REPETITIVE SENSORY EXPERIENCES.The language portion of the brain is enhanced greatly by interaction with others because the brain can then connect words with objects and experiences.
3. MOVEMENT GETS THE BRAIN GOING.An active body makes for an active brain.

4. STRESS DISABLES LEARNING.┬áCortisol, a hormone that kills off connections in the learning and memory parts of the brain, is produced during trauma. While you can’t (and shouldn’t) protect your child from all stressors, a close relationship with you and other caring adults will help her learn to cope and to feel good about herself.
5. MUSIC BOOSTS LEARNING.Singing, listening to, and playing music improves spatial orientation and mathematical thinking. Plus, rhyming builds language skills.

As simple as that!

 

Imortalise the stories you tell your children to introduce them to the world around them. I did!

What if everyone looked and acted the same? What a boring place the world would be! The world is like a giant pizza. Without all the different cheeses, sauces, and vegetables all you get is an unexciting, tasteless pizza crust! However, when you put them all together, you get something very interesting and delicious. So come on, take a bite of these books, see how exciting the world is, and how similar the people are and yet so different. Come, help break down the walls between countries.
