We create neuron pathways to store the information. Hence, the more specific the neuron pathway, the stronger is the memory. According to Judy Nolte, Editor-in-Chief of American Baby (Aug29, 2008, CBS), most adults do not remember any specific events before the age of three. Scientists call this period, childhood amnesia. Memory is very short and specific before the age of three. Such short-term memory may explain why I need to remind my son to pull the flush and wash his hands after going to the toilet each time! The good news is that a child’s memory grows with time, and with proper reinforcement, you can strengthen his or her memory. Some of the reinforcements such as associations, repetition, constant reviews, and games like “peek-a-boo” are already old friends to us.

You can improve memory by “feeding” your brain, have sufficient rest and be physically fit. Drink plenty of water, at least 6 to 8 glasses a day, and eat foods rich in Omega 3 such as trout, mackerel, avocado, seeds, nuts and extra virgin oil.

Folate rich foods include orange juice, strawberries, avocado, beans, peas and vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, asparagus and Brussels sprouts. B vitamins are found in dairy products, vegetables and whole grains and are crucial in manufacturing red blood cells that transport oxygen to brain cells.

So, provide plenty of opportunities for your child to practice cardio exercises outdoors. Help your child develop good sleep practices. According to Richard Ferber, Director for the center for pediatric sleep disorders, Children’s Hospital Boston, children less than four years old need at least 11 to 12 hours sleep a day.
