The first five years of a child's age is very important, as it is the time, when development of
almost all organs occurs, including the brain. Human brain is an extremely elastic organ. However,
brain activities depend entirely on how a person uses it, and in what manner he or she hones it
to boost several of its important abilities. “Use it or lose it” that is how the brain
acts and performs; use it more to boost several brain skills in one attempt or stop using it to lose
most of the god-given brain skills.
A just born child has a rudimentary brain with very basic and primary capability. As it grows into
its fifth year, it would have acquired many important skills that are needed. It is possible
to boost several important brain functions by parental intervention, although by a very small percentage.
However, brain boosting activities never a waste as results might visible within the first five years
of life. Have a nice day!
Thought for today:

Study: Playing music helps sharpen kids' brains

A two-year study of 44 children in the program shows that the
training changes the brain in ways that make it easier for
youngsters to process sounds, according to results reported in
Tuesday's edition of The Journal of Neuroscience. That increased
ability, the researchers say, is linked directly to improved skills
in such subjects as reading and speech.
Ignore the IQ test: your level of intelligence is not fixed for life
The Conversation Aug 27, 2014

trait that can't be changed. Other research is beginning to show the
