Why Young Kids Like to Read the Same Books Again and Again
Why Young Kids Need to Read the Same Book Again and Again

Many children like to (be) read the same book every night, even if both the parent and the child know all the words by heart. Activities occurring at bedtime being especially well-remembered by young kids, we might wonder if those repetitions are useful. Indeed they are. This shows your child enjoys the story and is still learning from the same words and pictures, and from the interactions with you while you read again and again this good old story together.

Forget corporal punishment
According to a recent study of the American Academy of Pediatrics, corporal punishment is harmful, very little effective and causes children to behave aggressively.

An increase of men in childcare is strongly needed to provide kids different perspectives and crucial role models to look up to.
The Huge Lack of Male Role Models in Early Education

In Scotland, only a meager 4 percent of the early education workforce are men. On the bright side, according to John Kemp, chief of the Scottish Funding Council, which will administer the Men in Early Years Challenge Fund: “Diversity and representation are vital to ensure caring is not seen exclusively as a female role, and that all children have access to positive male role models." An increase of men in childcare is strongly needed to provide kids different perspectives and crucial role models to look up to.

Preschool children need more math.
Why a Lot of Parents and Preschool Teachers Dislike Math

According to ​Deborah Stipek, a professor at Stanford University and the former dean of the School of Education, preschool children need more math. Nowadays, parents are well aware of the undisputed advantages of reading, talking and singing with their children. But this is, by far, not yet the case with mathematics although solid research has shown that early math is just as important as early literacy for future educational success. “For a variety of reasons, people haven’t paid attention to math,” says Stipek.

Preschool children who do math activities at home with mom or dad not only benefit from improvement in math skills but in literacy skills as well.
Why Parents Should Practice Math at Home with their Preschool Children

A research from Purdue University has shown that preschool children who do math activities at home with mom or dad not only benefit from improvement in math skills but in literacy skills as well. “Exposure to basic numbers and math concepts at home were predictive, even more so than storybook reading or other literacy-rich interactions, of improving preschool children’s general vocabulary,” said Amy Napoli, a doctoral student in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies who led the study.

The so-called “Mozart effect,” is one of the most popular “neuromyths” about the learning process of the human brain.
Common Myths About our Brain: Learning Styles, Reading Styles, the Mozart Effect and More

https://www.childup.com/blog/common-myths-about-our-brain-learning-styles-reading-styles-the-mozart-effect-and-more

Several pernicious myths about our brain are as widespread as persistent. Not so long ago, children were supposed to have their learning skills boosted by listening to Mozart and watching stimulating images of the then-famous Baby Einstein video series. Many people believed that classical music has a beneficial effect on a young brain development. Today, most of the neuroscience experts don’t believe in this anymore, but a large part of the public still does. And even more disturbing: a majority of educators still does, too. The so-called “Mozart effect,” for example, is one of the most popular “neuromyths” about the learning process of the human brain.
