Thanks in part to the Internet, new discoveries from research laboratories and universities allow parents greater access and knowledge about a child’s cognitive development. This piece takes a closer look at how parents can improve their child’s brain development.

Raise your child in a loving and nurturing environment

Studies have shown that infants, toddlers and preschoolers all thrive when raised in loving and nurturing environments. This includes parents who provide plenty of meaningful physical contact by cuddling with their child, having fun during bath-time, and also infant massages. Also speaking aloud to a baby or young child slowly, in conjunction with eye contact, and drawing out your syllables when speaking, is beneficial to developing young minds.

Make sure that discipline remains positive

Discipline, when implemented properly, should teach a young child right from wrong with a positive message, versus a complete lack of discipline or overly-forceful and unreasonable tactics, which can confuse and frighten a child. Use a serious tone of voice, not necessarily loud, when correcting mistakes to emphasize your displeasure as the parent. Rules should be reasonable according to the developmental stage of the child. For example, it’s expected for young children to run and bounce, so it is suggested to provide the proper environment for this behavior, such as a park or playground. Also, childproofing your home will eliminate many potential problems as a parent. The valuable trinkets collected over the years should be stored in a safe place.

Give your child appropriate responses to certain actions

Children are eager to learn about the world around them by asking many questions and experimenting with cause and effect. So, it’s important for a parent’s response to inquiries, and consequences to experimenting to be well thought out before implementing any action. Provide your child with appropriate and consistent correction to behaviors. Also, be sure to provide answers to his or her many questions concerning the ever-expanding world as this will enhance brain development.
