Education according to the gurus, prepares a child to live in society and
the world, as we know it today. It inculcates values and introduces
skills the child can hone as he or she grows up to earn a living. While
education is a system, learning is a thirst quencher – it satisfies a
curiosity and gives wing to imagination. As a parent or caregiver, you
need to encourage this thirst for knowledge and nurture the imagination.

Education does not begin or end with school and university. One can be
educated constantly every moment of life. And, as you know experiences
are life’s greatest teachers.

Learning has many aspects. The basic aspect is to provide a vitally
conducive environment and the appropriate tools to learn. Another is that
you as a parent must be prepared to listen and to answer to the best of
your ability even awkward questions like ―where do babies come from,‖ or
―the meaning of sexy.‖ A child who is healthy, happy, physically active,
and loved learns easily and adjusts to any situation.

Every parent wants his or her child to excel and be successful. And, to
achieve this you must implement—quick thinking, a sharp brain, a balanced
lifestyle, and keep abreast with innovations and advancements in
education and educational tools.

Tips on How to Stimulate the Brain
As you know, it is the brain that helps us think, learn, and retain
memories. The cells in the brain are what control most of our sensory
functions and an infant’s brain has over 100 billion nerve cells that
grow and can be stimulated to function optimally.

Imagine recent brain research shows that what parents have been doing for
ages –singing, playing, reading, and interacting with their babies and
children – is what helps the brain to develop well and healthily. So,
when you cuddle your child and sing to it you are in fact, stimulating
brain cells. To optimize intelligence, experts recommend that you spend
time with your child and be warm and responsive.

Take One Step at a Time
As a modern day parent, you need to gauge the situation and take steps
accordingly. Education is important but does it fulfill its function -
this is an important question too. The world’s boundaries are in constant
motion and work situations, skills, educational curriculum, and
educational goals are constantly changing. The needs are greater and
career development has become a lifelong process for children as well as
adults.
You can stay one-step ahead by comprehending what your role is, for each
stage in growth, development traits, career needs. For instance, children
who are at pre-kindergarten to the third grade level constantly seek
attention and praise. They are known to have boundless energy and tend to
consider fantasy as real. At this stage it is important to create a
distinction between work and play.

At this stage toys and learning material such as those marketed by Smart
Neurons will prove beneficial and improve role-playing. Most important
never make decisions for your child—make decisions with your child.

Prepare for the 21st century

It is advancements in technology that is taking learning forward by leaps
and bounds. Computers, CDs, DVDs, and audio-visual aids enhance learning,
create a curiosity, give flight to creativity, and increase
communications ten-fold. Innovative learning tools designed by firms like
Smart Neurons expose the minds of children to a great variety of
situations and use role playing and other developmental tools to develop
informal reasoning in children and help children use their intelligence
to arrive at logical and practical conclusions. Learning through
technology can help children develop eye-hand coordination and great
strategy skills. It also improves thinking ability, encourages children
to seek and find answers or solutions to problems and helps enhance
people skills. Parents can take the initiative to integrate technology in
learning and discover along with their children the ―magical‖ world of
computers and interactive learning systems.
