Hi,
The brain in a child is malleable. The nature shapes a child's brain in its own way. For every child and its tiny brain, nature also has its own special of nurturing and development. Child brain development is a continuous act performed by an ever-agile nature. While the nature has complete control on children's brain development, parents, teachers and other caregivers also have a critical role to play.

So, what role do parents and teachers have to play to fast track their children's brain development? Is it possible to boost early brain growth by using alternative techniques and nurturing aids beyond the traditional parental methods? Early brain growth among children occurs during two distinctive phases of activities.

By tweaking and manipulating these specific phases, parents can catalyze optimal brain growth and development right through the infancy and childhood days. Parenting is an intelligent act while parenting to boost brain growth is challenging as well as thrilling. Have a great week ahead!

Thought for today:
"Age may wrinkle the face, but lack of enthusiasm wrinkles the soul." - Danish Proverb
