How to Improve Your Child's Intelligence

by Abdul Cholik

Parents can only do so much for their children as they grow older. They cannot do everything for their children and help their children improve their intelligence. Once the kids grow older parents can only supervise, provide guidance and set the child up to learn life's lessons. For example, parents need to be there to supervise their kids TV and video game playing habits. While there is no study correlating this to a child's intelligence, these are disruptive activities that could lead to poor grades. When parents are firm in ensuring that children do their school work first before they turn their attention to TV and video games, they are teaching their kids to become more responsible. They are likewise teaching the kids to prioritize things and this is one of the most important lessons in life that they can learn outside the four walls of the school room.

Importance of Early Childhood Education

Early childhood generally encompasses the first eight years in the life of an individual. The education given during these years of a child's life plays a very important role and helps in proper development of children. Early childhood education can be fundamentally termed as "Learning through play". Recent research have shown that early eight years in any children life are crucial time because during this phase their brain develops and much of its 'wiring' is laid down. The education experiences and relationships a child has along with nutrition can actually affect child mental growth enormously. While good early childhood education helps the brain to develop in healthy ways, improper education or study without play on other hand may affect brain development in different manner. So the experiences and the learning of a child in early years can support them in their entire life.

Early Childhood Education Course for Teachers

Early childhood education is a concept that has been applied very effectively to children below the usual school age. It is based on the belief that children will learn through play, which is why the basics are integrated into play and taught to the children. The developer, Jean Piaget, believed those young children and even older ones learn more efficiently effectively through fun and play. Several activities are especially effective such as art, social games and dramatic play. These are supposed to awaken the interest and curiosity of the child and invoke the tendency for make believe and social thinking.
