They say it all roots back to our childhood. It’s our very first years that define our personality, temper, habits, and interests. That’s why it is so important for young parents to nurture their little kids not only physically, but also mentally. As both experience and studies confirm, activities associated with brain development help little kids grow up stronger, smarter, and more creative.
Nonetheless, when it comes to conversations about the best practices of nurturing your child’s brain, there are plenty of colliding views. There are numerous controversial tips and advice on the Internet, so there is no wonder why young parents find it hard to define the best approach and follow it consistently.
To help you and other parents in those deliberations, we’ve prepared a detailed infographic featuring all the ins and outs of nurturing growing brains of little kids. It turns out, that the human brain expands and develops most actively between the moment of birth and the age of three.

Given all the benefits mentioned above, it goes without saying that parents should dedicate a lot of time to engaging kids in simple activities associated with early childhood development. Wonder what these activities are? There are many of them.
