Have you heard of the wolf child in the India which is raised by wolf? In fact, this event once has brought too much shock all over the world. Then lots of wolf children were found around the world and most of them were sent to the hospital to take the standard treatment so as to achieve normal intellectual level of adults. What a pity, the result is unsuccessful. According to the scientific research, in the early time, the wolf child lived in the animal world and accept the information of wolf activities. As a result, they missed the critical period of receiving the human education. From the wolf child case, we can get the conclusion that during the process of human intelligence development, the genetic factors determine the possibility of intellectual development and above all the environment and education conditions determine the reality of the intellectual development.
Therefore, one hot topic is that during the process of children intellectual development, as parents, how to provide them the environment which is conducive to their intellectual development?
Firstly, it is important to provide abundant information to stimulate children. As is known to all, the stimulation from lots of information can make children have the strong curiosity and active exploration desire. Many parents would want to know where to find such abundant information, in fact, it lies in our daily life. For example, all kinds of ornaments in the room are the good information stimulus so that smarter parents should make good use of them, otherwise they are only the permanent and real ornaments. When placing these items, parent should consider their educational functions. It is better to place a few potted plant at the appropriate place or raise several goldfish and so on, all of which undoubtedly is of great benefit for children.
Secondly, discuss some question with children together frequently. For example, you can discuss the different rain sounds between the heavy rain and the light rain, what should do on these hot days while what should do on that cold days. By this way, children are always during the thinking status, which is beneficial to develop their mental development.
Thirdly, take some activities to develop their intelligence such as the chess playing game and so on. When playing with chess, both children’s attention and judgment can be developed at a certain extent.
Fourthly, give children one tool cabinet, in which there are paper, scissors, crayon and other items. Children can use their wild imagination to create happiness.
