If you want your child to have a high IQ, you need more than just exercise your child’s brain
Now is the era of “fighting the baby”, and it is who’s baby is “smart”. After all, there is nothing more proud of parents than praising their own baby.
However, in the thinking of most parents, they think that to make their children smart, they only need to cultivate and exercise their children’s brains.
But in fact, within 1,000 days from the birth of a child, their intelligence level has been on the rise, and the development of the brain will gradually improve as the child grows, which means that parents do not need to deliberately exercise the child’s brain. , should start elsewhere.
Research shows that if you want your baby to have outstanding IQ, the “second brain” needs to be paid attention to
Wilder P, a Canadian worth shell expert, once divided and studied according to various regions of the brain, and also drew a “brain map”. He found that each region of the brain has a certain proportion, and the proportion of the hand is very large. .
He believes that the larger the proportion of the brain area, the more obvious the impact on the brain. Therefore, if the child’s brain is to be fully developed, it is necessary to start from the area with the largest proportion.
In the “brain map”, the human fingers and palms account for about 30% of the brain. It can be seen that the impact of the hand on the brain is very critical.
Therefore, scientists also believe that the hand is the “second brain” of the human body. The better the development of the child’s hand, the better the brain will naturally be.
Parents should intentionally exercise their baby’s “hands”
Scientists have found in research that different hand movements can have different effects on the brain, but not all hand movements do.
The “grasping” action familiar to parents is actually the most basic, and can only be used in the old motor cortex, which does not help children’s brain development much.
On the contrary, fine movements can stimulate the new motor cortex of the child’s brain, thereby helping the child’s brain development.
This is because when children do fine movements, they not only let their brains issue instructions to themselves, but also have the effect of “hand-brain coordination”, which makes the hands flexible and the brain smarter.
Therefore, parents should intentionally exercise the fine movements of the baby’s “hand”, rather than simply “grasping”.
How to exercise your baby’s “second brain”
Babies before 6 months can’t do anything other than grasping, so there is no need to deliberately exercise them at this time, and they can grow and develop step by step.
After 6 months, the baby already has the ability to control the hand, not only can complete the hand-changing movement, but also can perform certain fine movements.
At this time, parents can prepare ball games and toys that can be hit for the baby, so that the baby’s “hand-brain” can start to cooperate, and the child’s cerebral cortex can be stimulated through sound.
At around 1 year old, you can let your baby start to practice coherent hand activities, such as picking up food and putting it in his mouth, taking a picture book and starting to read and so on.
Although these movements are not difficult, they are also very helpful for the development of the baby’s brain.
At about 15 months, you can play some difficult games. It is best to use your baby’s hands to fully exercise your baby’s hands.
When the child is in the month when he can build blocks, he should also prepare a set of building blocks for the child. Building blocks can be said to be helpful helpers in children’s toys for growth.
