General Tips for Helping Your Child Learn:
- Brain research tells us that your child’s developing brain learns best by being face-to-face with an adult — you! — while learning. We also know that touching and moving help children’s brains learn.
- Singing songs, speaking, and reading require similar processing in the brain. Listening to and singing songs helps your child understand language patterns. This understanding will later help your child learn to read.
- Children learn by doing simple tasks first before moving on to more difficult tasks. Think of your child’s learning as a set of stairs—it starts at the base and moves up one step at a time.
- Asking questions encourages your child to be curious and stimulates thinking. When your child asks a question, it’s OK for you to say, “What do you think?” or “Let’s find out together.” You don’t have to answer every question.
- Playing board games and video games is fun, and these games can also be good for children’s mental and physical development. Board games and video games can help children improve their thinking and reasoning skills as well as their physical coordination.
- Playing games helps children develop problem-solving and creative thinking skills. Games are a fun way to learn how to take turns and delay gratification. These are important skills to help your child learn self-control.
