A recent Gallup Poll estimates 53% of Americans are dissatisfied with the quality of education their children receive. For the first time in history America’s younger generation is less well educated than their parents. Most parents are frustrated and often at a loss about how to truly help their children thrive and learn. Our lives are busier than ever before and there is little time for parents to focus on learning. The sad truth is only 69% of high school students graduate.
What researchers know now that they might not have understood decades ago is that the earliest stimulation of a child is what matters most in the long term. That means simple measures parents can take like playing classical music in the nursery and interacting with baby as often and as much as possible truly matter. Reading to a toddler is free and it’s stimulating. It just takes a few minutes a day! An even better way to provide an enriched environment for your baby is to start when she’s still in the womb. Products like The BabyPlus Prenatal Education System® do a wonderful job of making the most of those ever important developmental months inside the womb. Any environmentally stimulating activity we can offer as parents in the first five years can potentially change the entire course of a child’s life.
