Child brain development child development
Laying the pathways for significant intellectual, emotional, physical, immunological, and social functions and that experiences from the age of two through five provide a child with the foundations for later learning and for formal education, as well as with baseline social skills.
Neglect, abuse or brain injury during the early years of a child can have dire consequences for the rest of her life; it not only stunts her future growth but can seriously handicap the child in all her other faculties as well. Lack of mental stimulation affects every aspect of the child's future development - physical, cognitive, emotional, linguistic, psychological and social. As a rule of thumb:
• the younger the child is when she experiences neglect, abuse cog brain injury, the more severe the detriment to her growth;
• the more severe the neglect, abuse or brain injury, the more severe the detriment to her growth
• the more prolonged the neglect or abuse, the more severe the detriment to her growth
On the other hand exposing your infant and toddler to a wide variety of new experiences that involve all her senses - touch, taste, smell, hearing, and vision - is the best thing you can do to stimulate brain development, and that in turn ensures a healthy development of all the other faculties.
Your child 's creative art and craft activities make effective brain development
The child's world as reflected in his drawings and paintings is usually a brighter , gayer, more charming place than the work-a-day world of adults.
When children leave the manipulative stage in drawing, they enter the symbolic stage. A child's symbols represent the things he sees. Child draw larger the things that interest them most.
Because the whole child is involved in a creative art experience. what each one does will depend to a large extent upon his own natural interests. Since the art impulse is closely related to the play impulse, your child will wish to draw, paint, or mode just as long as he has fun creating.
Children love to work with bright colors. Most young boys and girls do not color things realistically. They enjoy painting polka-dotted cats, purple horses, and yellow skies. All this he does because he knows that he is free to draw or paint in his own way.
