Enhancing Child's Brain Development

Parents play an important role in the development of child’s brain. Read on to find tips for enhancing the natural process of child’s brain development.


There is no single magic trick which will make your child a genius. All parents desire that their child should become super intelligent and excel in just about everything. Sadly it is this over expectation which can adversely affect a child’s brain development. Plain common sense and expecting age appropriate performance from a child is all that is required to raise a well developed, intelligent child.

The purpose of this article is to provide some useful tips for parents to help their child’s brain develop naturally. Once this happens the child will automatically grow to be an intelligent and confident individual.


Unconditional Love

There is no substitute for love, care and comfort which only parents can give a child. Grandparents and extended family members can also play an active role in this regard. Parents must respond positively and quickly to feelings of a child. They must not overreact but at the same time provide the required support in a timely manner. A child understands the importance of social interactions by observing the giving and caring attitude of his or her parents and grandparents.

Abusing a child physically or mentally can be detrimental to the overall development of a child in the long run. Hence, parents must learn to be patient and handle child challenges in a mature manner without stressing the child in any way.


Communicate Skills

The language related skills of a child depends to a very large extent on how people around them talk to them. From a very early stage itself parents must make it a point to talk to their child constantly. It does not matter if your child blabbers in baby language. It is important to respond to the child and have regular conversation irrespective of whether the child understands what the parents have to say or not.


Exposure to Outside World

A child must be exposed to varieties of experiences. This can be any activity like reading a book together, painting a picture, dancing to music, zoo visit, going to a park, a bus or a train ride. Parents must be prepared to keep repeating these experiences at regular intervals. The more opportunities a child gets to see different things and meet people, better are the chances of her developing good intellectual and social skills.


Diet and Nutrition

Diet and nutrition is also an important factor that can influence brain development of a child. Brain development starts in the womb itself. Hence, women must adopt good eating habits immediately before and after they conceive. Abstinence from alcohol and smoking is a must since these can directly impact the child's brain development in the womb.

After birth, breastfeeding is the best food for a baby. It contains fatty acids like DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and AHA or AA (Arachidonic Acid) which are believed to be good for brain development. As the child moves beyond breastfeeding stage, it is important to give her a well balanced, healthy diet. In addition to breast milk in the first two years of a child’s life it is important for the child to get half of her daily calorie requirement from good fats, sources of which include yoghurt, cheese, ghee and whole milk.

A child's brain development and intelligence is greatly impacted by their early experiences in life. Parents play a key role in raising a well developed child. To nurture the child all that parents need to do is to adopt a loving and caring attitude. It would suffice if parents act naturally and do not overly stress the child or themselves with a view to improve a child’s level of intelligence.

communication is the key to brain development. Communication opens up the mind and senses and hence the child becomes active.
