Humans have the longest childhood of any animal on the planet. Neural circuits started forming before you were born, and so extended brain development continues during childhood.
Childhood is a time when children need love, affection, care. It is extended pregnancy for mother, helped by other family members.
If you want your kid to unveil his/her potentially fully, take care of their childhood. Take care of them like they are in womb for at least 5-6 years. Do not give them stress. Do not scold them. Whatever you want them to learn, demonstrate in your activities. They are great learners .Do not impose your mentality on them. Give them free space to breathe.
