Cognitive Development


In the first 2 years of life, there is an absolute explosion of new neural connections formed in our brains. After 2, the brain begins 'paring' down these connections, to allow for higher cognitive functions. The urgency here is, once we have grown up, we don't get a second chance to go back and form these pathways. 

For babies, don't be afraid to stimulate them. Look for toys with contrasting colors, different textures and sounds. Remember safety, and be mindful of your baby's physical capabilities. 

For toddlers to teens, focus on higher-level cognitive goals, like problem-solving and logic. Be mindful of your child's emotional maturity, and avoid tasks that are too easy for your child.
