10 Simple Things That Can Boost Your Child’s Brain Power

Source: The McCormick Tribune Foundation

1. Interaction – Spend time watching me and responding to my cues, it tells me I’m important and special to you.

2. Loving Touch – Cradle me, hold me. Give me lots of hugs. It keeps me calm and comforts me, and gives me courage to move on.

3. Stable Relationship – I need someone special to be there when I call. When I look around and see you I know I can go far.

4. Safe, Healthy Environment – Plug the outlets, block the stairs, keep lead away for sure! Make a safe special place so I am free to explore.

5. Self Esteem – I can do it, yes I can, if you tell me so. Pay attention, give me praise and watch me go, go, go!

6. Quality Child Care – When you’re gone I need to be with people you can trust to help me grow and teach me new, exciting stuff.

7. Communication – I may not talk, but don’t be fooled, I understand a lot. Our little conversations mean so very much!

8. Play – Play is fun, play is work, It’s how I learn the ropes. When we play together you help me more than you know.

9. Music – 1,2,3, sing to me and make up silly tunes. Music is special time that’s fun to share with you.

10. Reading – Read to me, show me books with lots of pretty pictures. Write my stories out in words I’ll love to read forever.
