Do you know that the first four years influence a child's entire life. A child can understand several words by the age of one and 40% of the adult intelligence develops in the first four years. Quite Interesting!!! So thats the best period to develop a child's physical abilities, intellect, language and creativity. As contrary to what we think, the child hears and understands the most in his formative years and not in later years. That's why its important that parents should provide their child the best possible and stimulating environment. Allow your child run around and explore. Buy him educational tools and toys. This is where the role of a pre-school assumes importance. It is very important that what kind of peer group your child is interacting with at the school because this group forms the learning ground for them about right behaviour, friendship, sharing etc., He can be a Einstein in making if he is nurtured in the right environment and with lots of love. Do parents give the most to their Child?Parents have an important role to play in a child's formative years? But its pity to say that in this techno savvy century we just forget that. How can we play our roles?
I think we should give them:
(a)Freedom to move, to think, to express, to explore and let your kids see the world through their eyes and not yours.
(b) Give opportunities to show their creativity with colours or dance steps or to interact with the peer group and perform in front of people.
Thirdly (c) the most important is the give them love. Nurture them with love. Appreciate and motivate him so that he can take on life with confident and optimism.
