In part 1, we’ve discovered the smart methods to raise a clever kid. Parenting is a process, not just day in day out you can successfully achieve everything. In part 2, we will continue learning some more about the golden ways to help your kid grow better!
5. Set expectations early and reinforce them often.
Do not become a drill sergeant like “You will get an A on every single test” so they are likely to see certain targets as relevant and realistic by setting such overarching goals for children (i.e., graduation, engaging in extracurricular and charitable work).
6. Encourage exercise.
Exercise physically not only enhances your child but also makes him or her smarter! Training increases blood supply to the brain and produces healthy brain cells. Exercise is beneficial for the mental sharpness of adults but is longer lasting for the brain of your child.
7. Seek out teachable moments.
It will motivate you to build mental acumen just to inspire your kids to use their minds during downtime. Have a talk about the wind energy on a windmill or search for letters or numbers on signs when walking, having them counting on limes for the grocery store check-out.
8. Encourage curiosity and exploration.
Preschoolers are naturally interested, but that inclination will decline as kids grow older unless it’s exercised and promoted. Start by involving them in subjects that are of particular interest to them, even though it includes their favorite YouTube star or series of action figures.
Put questions and express your interests, and explain why they matter to you. You may also schedule activities such as museum visits, athletic competitions, or films, which help you get to know each other and encourage fresh discussions.
Let the children play too. When your child plays, he doesn’t just have fun, he grows his brain. His intellectual, social, physical, and emotional skills were developed.
When he interacts with other friends, he learns to blend thoughts, observations, and sentiments with the perceptions and perspectives of other children.
9. Teach your child to have a growth mindset.
Encourage your children to perceive learning as a mechanism by which hard work fosters results; they begin as novices, but increasingly progress over time. Then when tough challenges are given, they can see them as prospects for progress, instead of seeing themselves as shortcomings to be experts automatically.
10. Be proactive.
Do not wait until your children obtain new learning experiences. Check for non-school tasks that grow various mental muscles.
11. Music Lessons
It is very plain and simple: research show music lessons make kids more clever.
Children in music groups saw higher improvements in full-scale IQ relative to the children in control groups. The impact was very limited but extended over IQ subscriptions, index scores, and a typical academic success test.
This does not mean that your child can benefit from brain growth by bumping to your greatest radio songs. To make a good influence, the Masterminds team claims that traditional and orchestral music are vital components of the musical menu of a child. Early exposure to music makes musical understanding, imagination, and expression possible for children.
Experts suggest that their children be introduced to Mozart and Bach’s “sophisticated pieces.” These may arise when a child plays or eats in the background. This will potentially contribute to musical instrument learning.
Children young and young will begin to play complicated instruments, such as the violin, with great balance, comprehension, and concentration advantages. The creation of greater empathy in children is also correlated with music.
12. Don’t overprotect.
Many parents (including myself) have trouble solving problems at the present age of helicopter parentage but are eased to fix problems for them.
Based on a Harvard Report, it is argued that it is important to encourage children to make mistakes and to improve resilience and resourcefulness to achieve success.
It’s not easy at all. To benefit from them, both of us must go a long way between defending our children and encouraging them to solve problems.
13. Peer Group Matters
Your partner’s genes and your genetics have a big influence on your offspring. However, how do you raise your children?
Not almost like that. Biological infants are very close to their parents for factors like assessing academic capacity and certain facets of personality. But the findings for the adoptive children are very odd.
Their ratings are totally unlike their adopted parents. These children are no better like those that educated them, ate them, dressed them, read them, educated them, and cherished them for seventeen years than any two people taken off the street.
They do not have an analytical ability or disposition that is any more similar. So what has a huge effect on the actions of your children? Their peer group of course.
Usually, we worry just about social pressure when it’s bad, but it’s a good thing more times than not. Living in a safe neighborhood, going to good schools, and having the kids out around good children will make a big difference.
