Early Brain Development:
A Parent's Guide

The development of your child's brain begins in the foetus stage. Early brain development process starts within three weeks of conceiving.

Early Brain Development

It is true that the process of brain development starts at an early stage but this continues till the end of your child's life.

The development of the brain depends on the events that take place in it. These events are also responsible for storing all the memories and information.

This process is a life long process and it never stops. Everyday, your child's brain stores more and more information and there is no way it can ever come to a halt.

Stages Of Brain Development

The brain develops in two stages...

The first stage is called prenatal stage. At this stage the brain development begins when your baby is inside your womb as foetus. The brain begins to work before your baby is born.

The second stage of development starts after the birth of your baby. This is called the postnatal stage. It is also a brain development at an earlier stage of your baby's development.

Scientists say that the brain of your child is very much impressionable or plastic. It means that in the early development stage the brain can memorise and learn more than adults.

In the later stage the brain slowly looses its plasticity. For this reason a human being can not easily remember everything he or she learns in adulthood.

It is the early stage of the brain that is very vital, more than any other point of time in life, for growth of the intellectual and emotional faculties.

It is during the early brain development process that hundreds of important connections get built that goes on to decide the potentials and skills that your child will have in its life.

This plasticity has positive effects as well as negative effects. It is true that the plasticity of the brain helps in memorising with ease and it helps your child to learn more in less time. The negative effect of this elasticity is the bad effect of the environment.

Your child learns from the environment where he lives. He can quickly adopt the skills he watches from the environment.

If the environment is not helpful for your child’s enrichment, it will give a negative impact on his brain which is in an early brain development stage.

Many people are not sure whether the genes or the environment form the most important factor that leaves the greatest impression on the brain at an early stage.

In fact, the genes and the environmental factors are both equally important for the proper development of the brain of your baby.
