Intellectual Capacity and the Young Child

The best thing parents can do to develop the intellectual capacity of their children is to expose them to a variety of learning experiences. Developing gross motor, fine motor, language, cognitive and social skills are all very important. It helps develop what are called neural networks. A neural network is simply a wiring of neurons. In the cortex of the brain there are billions of these neurons and hence the potential for children to develop more or less of these networks depending on the type of early stimulation your child receives. The more neural networks a child possesses, and the greater the frequency of use; the more likely a child is to develop a high intellectual capacity. In fact studies show that a
