Stimulate Your Kid's Cognitive Thinking Through Small Everyday Challenges
As a parent, it is vital for you to stimulate the brain power and critical thinking of your growing child at this stage. The more he exercises his thinking capacity, the more the brain will develop. Set small challenges in front of your child in everyday circumstances and encourage him to come up with solutions.
For example, while buying fruits at the supermarket, you can say, “Oh- these 5 apples aren’t fitting in this bag! What should we do?” If the child suggests taking a bigger bag or fewer apples, applaud him for his logical thinking.
Resist the urge to help your child with a solution if he is not able to tackle the problem at first. Give him some time, and suggest a different way at looking at the matter; for example, “So, do you think the problem could be with the size of the bag?” Give gentle hints but allow your kid to come up with the final answer himself.
