How do I make my child smart - 10 Tips For Raising a Smart Child

Researchers have reported that parents have a great ability to make children smarter, in addition to providing an atmosphere of peace and happiness inside the home.

Research summarized 10 scientific ways to enhance children's intelligence, by tracing the path of education that goes from birth to the teenage years.

Music lessons - 1 

 A scientific study published in the journal "Science Daily" showed that children belonging to musical groups are more motivated to develop their intellectual abilities than children who are constantly watched.

 According to the study, the students' musical training gives them an opportunity to impose themselves within the classroom.

Sports and knowledge - 2

 It is common knowledge among parents that young children need to play outside more than to go to libraries, but trying to reconcile them may be a contributing factor to activating intelligence in children.

 John Raty, author of the book "The New Science of Brain Experiences" confirms in this regard that activating the body increases the ability to learn, noting that children receive vocabulary 20 percent more after sports activities.

Share reading - 3

 Studies urge parents to engage their children with readers.  Scientists advise that parents not be satisfied with reading, while the child continues to look at the pictures affected by the reading of one of his parents.

 Shared reading contributes to the development of the child's abilities to analyze and formulate a strategy for understanding, according to an article by researchers Phillips Linda, Norris Stefan and Anderson Jim, in the journal "Canadian Psychology."

Lack of sleep - 4 

 A study found that depriving a sixth-grade child of an hour of sleep causes his brain to function at the same level as a fourth-grade child.

 The study, which was published in the book "New Ideas about Babies" by Bo Bronson, showed that students who get an "A" mark, that is, the highest score, sleep an extra 15 minutes than those who get an average of a "B" mark.

self-desire - 5

 Dozens of studies indicate that the strength of desire in a child is the main indicator of the behavior of successful children.

 Among these studies is what was mentioned in the book "The Power of Habituation" by Charles Duhigg, which found that students who have levels of self-interest are among the most successful in their academic careers.

Interaction in education - 6

 Children spend a number of hours in front of TV screens watching cartoons and programs for children, which may allow them to learn six to eight vocabulary words less than a child who does not watch these programmes, according to one study.

 A study entitled "Do Young People Learn from the Media" published in the Journal of Psychology in 2010 confirms that the brain develops by the things that the body's organs do, not just by listening to how things happen.

food - 7

 Eating food at specific times and in the right quantities and qualities helps in developing the level of children in the study, according to research conducted on 16 students linking diet, focus and quick thinking.

the happiness - 8

 A happy child is necessarily a successful child.  This is what researcher Kristen Kart found and published in her book "Happiness: 10 Stages for a Happy Child and Parents", in which she confirmed that a happy child's return mostly results from his psychological state, which gives him an additional impetus to achieve more successes.

Peer group - 9

 Parents are usually afraid of the negative impact of peer groups on their children, but children's contact with their peers in a healthy environment can turn into a catalyst for unleashing children's smart energies, as Malcolm Gladwell asserts in his book "How Little Things Can Make a Difference?".

 Living in a clean neighborhood and going to schools that are good in terms of teaching quality, making sure that children are in the company of good people, helps to explode children's talents.

Belief in their abilities  - 10

 The belief of parents and teachers in children's abilities and their level of intelligence contributes to pushing children to excellence.  A study conducted by researchers Robert Reisanthal and Lenore Jacobson in a number of American schools showed that teachers who teach before the start of the school year the names of smart students, make them believe in their abilities and push them more towards excellence.
