“The child has a mind able to absorb knowledge. He has the power to teach himself”.  – Maria Montessori

 

It is easy to see that everyone, including children, has a difference in how our brains work. As parents, you may also see these differences among your children every day. Maybe you see that there are children who easily remember things, but there are also those who have difficulty remembering.

A person’s ability to plan, manage time, and remember is how the brain works. The way the brain works can affect your child’s ability to perform in all aspects of life such as cognitive, social, emotional, and others.

The interesting thing you should know is that science has shown that we can change and improve the way a person’s brain works. This is good news for you as parents.

You can help your child develop these skills through several activities. Here are some activities you can do to encourage your child’s brain to work optimally.

  1. The Use of Flashcards. Flashcards help children recognize objects with their sense of sight which is the eyes. Children can verbally identify specific items on the card. In this way, the right brain develops better.
  2. Memory games. To practice children’s memory skills, you can apply game strategies that train memory. For example, using flashcards, children learn to open cards and remember their placement to form pairs of the same item. To get as many pairs of cards as possible in the shortest time, the child must remember which card was opened with the right brain.
  3. In this game, children learn to solve problems by visualizing the placement of objects and correctly placing and connecting one piece to another. This game is a great way to develop children’s potential in coordination, problem-solving, cognitive skills, and fine motor skills.
  4. Stacking Game – How high can you stack? This game serves to improve fine motor skills and coordination. It will teach children to train their thinking. Usually, this type of game is suitable for children aged 2-5 years.
  5. Schedule Daily Talk Time. Currently, the problem that often arises in children living in this technological age is a tendency to have a lack of communication with those around them. It happens because they mostly spend their time just watching rather than directly involved. Therefore, activities such as Daily Talk Time with your child will help them learn to communicate what is on their mind.

They can talk about good things or challenges that happen to them each day during their daily talk time. This activity will also help them learn problem-solving skills. You can do this activity when your whole family can gather every day.

  1. This game will help in the social and cognitive development of children. Usually, this game will be effective in children aged 2-6 years. When children pretend to play a role, they are enhancing their brain development for what they will show and communicate.

These games will improve the way the child’s brain works by helping develop language, social and emotional skills, nurturing imagination, and increasing understanding of the world around them.
