Why are the first five years of a child's life so important to his development, and what are some ways that you can stimulate your child's development?
The first five years are so important because the brain is the only organ that is not fully developed at birth. However, 90% of the brain develops before a child is five. Early childhood education is imperative in helping the brain grow and develop. In order to stimulate your child's development and ensure brain growth, you can do simple things to help him learn. Singing and reading to him are great ways to help the brain develop. Talking to your child and explaining things as you do them are also helpful. For example, as you are taking groceries out of the grocery bag, you can say things like, "The butter is going into the fridge," or "The bread is going to stay on the counter."
