Laughter as a complement to brain intelligence for the little ones

Laughing turns out to be an easy and inexpensive supplement that can improve a child’s brain intelligence. Why is it like this? First of all, when a child laughs, the body releases endorphins. These hormones act as powerful stress relievers.

When a child laughs, her body simultaneously recovers to stay in optimal condition. Laughing activates all areas of the brain. As a result, a child who laughs becomes more creative, generates numerous ideas and acquires broader knowledge.

Second, children absorb information more easily. As adults, they will find it easier to assimilate the lessons of school. This was tested at Pocoyo’s preschool abroad, where children did not get bored or tired easily.

Third, they can solve problems more effectively.

Considering these important benefits, laughing should be a primary need for both adults and children. Therefore, parents should encourage laughter in children.

However, making a child laugh can sometimes be a challenge. Parents should use several methods to provoke laughter.

If difficulties persist, here are some ways to provoke laughter depending on age:

  • Ages 0-6 months. Babies smile for the first time. At this age, they will laugh or smile when they hear funny sounds or see funny movements. For example, when they pick up the little one and suddenly lift him up and down repeatedly, they will be surprised and laugh.
  • Ages 6-12 months. At this age, children begin to find things that make them laugh on their own. Especially if they see unusual things, like seeing their dad with pants on his head and a funny expression. They also laugh when they are surprised or playing hide and seek.
  • Ages 12-18 months. They can understand sensory stimulation on the skin. They laugh when they are tickled. They also understand what they see and laugh at the funny cartoons.
  • Ages 18 months and older. They do many things that make them laugh, such as looking at picture books or watching comedy movies.

With these tips, it is hoped that children who laugh easily will be more open and creative.
