We have been discussing the peak periods of brain development in a child.
Professor Stuart Shanker of York University said,
* While conventional knowledge holds that the ability to reason is genetically hardwired into components of our brains from birth, our research shows that reason is in fact formed by emotion itself, by the responses of infants to their environment and to their caregivers*
This confirms our own observations that a child’s reasoning powers can be increased by improving their environment and their interaction with those around them.
