As a parent you are your child’s first and most important teacher. This means that you can be an incredibly positive influence on all areas of his or her growth, including brain development

Here’s how:

  • Respond with love: Meeting your child’s needs for food, sleep or cuddles in a loving, positive manner is crucial for boosting brain development. These activities build trust, making a child feel secure, relaxed and open to new learning experiences.
  • Get creative: Activities that provide sensory stimulation and new experiences create opportunities for learning. Showing your infant how to roll a ball or your toddler how to turn pages in a book is a creative approach that makes learning more fun and memorable. A visit to Cottonwood Creek park, which offers great facilities, is an opportunity to explore, learn and have adventures.
  • Make every experience a learning experience: Bath time, meals, and bedtime provide plenty of opportunities for your child to learn new things. Talk to your child about what foods he or she is eating. During bath time, let your child play with brightly colored waterproof toys. A storybook at bedtime relaxes and calms your child while boosting brain development.
  • Discipline boosts development too: Limitations on behavior is a key part of socio-emotional development. It encourages children to develop good habits. Rather than punishing your child, explain how he or she should behave. When your child does the right thing, be sure to take notice. Effusive praise is always a welcome reward.
