    The brain opens and unfolds its inherent agenda in stages. These stages unfold the way the brain developed in its evolutionary history; sensory motor, emotional, imaginative, each building on the foundation of the previous.In preparation for each new opening the brain grows new structure anticipating what is just about to happen. These growth spurts express as dramatic changes in the child’s interest and behavior. Optimum development is achieved by parents understanding each stage, what is appropriate for that stage and providing the nurturing stimulus right for that stage. Too much too soon prevents the full development of the early foundation weakening the ability for more advanced development that comes later.
