How Brain Development Affects Children
According to new study, the typical baby's brain is one-fourth the size of an adult's brain
on average. Within one year, it has grown by more than a factor of two. By the age of three, it
had grown to 80 percent adult size, and by the age of five, it had grown to 90 percent adult size.
The brain serves as the command centre for the whole body. However, although the brain
of a newborn child has all of the neurons it will ever need, it is the synapses that connect some of
these neurotransmitter. Our brain-connections let us move, think, interact, do everything. These
relationships must be made in early infancy. Every second, more than one million new brain
connections (synapses) are formed.
Movement, speech, and feelings are all controlled by distinct parts of the brain that grow
at different speeds. Brain development progresses as interactions become increasingly
sophisticated. This permits the child to walk around more freely, communicate more freely, and
think more freely.
The early socialisation and development of children will result in their growing up to be
healthier and more productive in school and in life as a result of their positive interactions with
others throughout their early development. Unfortunately, the condition may also be reversed in
certain situations, which is a sad fact of life. In addition to poverty and susceptibility to family
violence, children who do not have access to high-quality early active learning may suffer from a
variety of other variables that may have a negative impact on their normal brain development
and, as a consequence, on their overall long-term performance.
How Brain Connections Are Formed?
Children form connections in their brains via their everyday experiences, which begin as
early as infancy. They are created via the development of positive connections and with their
surroundings. It determine which neural pathways develop and which will last a lifetime in his or
her brain. It all comes down to the quantity and quality of attention, stimulation, and connection
that children get throughout their early development.
In terms of a child's future health and development, the first three years of his or her
existence are important.

Early Brain Development and Health
In addition to heredity, the effectiveness with which a brain develops is controlled by a range
of other factors, including:
• Good food starts during pregnancy and continues throughout life.
• Sensitivity to toxins or infections.
• The child's interactions with people as well as his or her interactions with the outer
environment.
Supporting a child's healthy brain development necessitates providing compassionate and
attentive care for both his or her body and intellect. It is possible that both positive and negative
experiences will have an influence on a growing brain and have long-term implications. Parents
and caregivers need guidance as well as the appropriate resources in order to properly nurture
their child's body and mind. The provision of good child care, beginning at birth and continuing
throughout childhood, helps to guarantee that the child's brain grows correctly and reaches its
full potential. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working to protect
children so that their brains may grow correctly.
During this important period, children's brains may be memorizing facts in a unique way.
Kids between the ages of 2 and 7 may be the most knowledgeable persons on the globe if
intelligence is defined as the capacity to learn.
According to research, certain abilities cannot be learnt as effectively beyond this initial
important stage of developing brain. However, beyond the year of eight, children's language
acquisition capacity declines, and second languages are not as widely spoken as native
languages. When developing musical qualities such as perfect pitch, the same age impact is seen.
Thus, it is necessary to focus on the different aspects to make sure brain development in the
child is healthy and progressive.
