Your Childs Brain

The brain is a vital organ that needs to be nurtured from birth. It is protected by eight bones and three layers of tissue. The eight bones make up what is called the cranium, or skull. The skull protects the brain and won’t be fully developed until your child is about twenty years old. Taking care of the brain from birth will help it to develop into a strong healthy machine.

Imagine life without memory. What would you do if you woke up and didn’t know where you were? What if you didn’t know how to take a shower, get dressed or tie your shoes? A lot of people don’t stop to think about these things. It would be pretty hard to survive without a brain.

Head injuries are one of the common causes of disability and death in children. Almost all children will bump their heads while learning to roll, crawl, walk or even ride a bike. The more force that is caused in a head injury, the more likely the brain has received a serious injury.

Brain injuries can cause seizures, vomiting, concussion, severe pain, nausea, loss of consciousness, and even bleeding from the head or face. If you notice any of these symptoms, especially after your child has bumped his or her head, call 911 right away. If your child stops breathing for more than a few seconds, start rescue breathing until help arrives.

There are a lot of things we can do to help protect our children’s brains. We can start by giving them the nourishment they need to survive. Eating fresh fruits and vegetable is a good start. Getting them on a daily vitamin is also good. Making sure they wear their helmets while riding their bikes and teaching them how to safely cross the street is also important. Always remember to put a seat belt on your child, and make sure the seat belt isn’t defective. Make your home safe from falls to prevent injury, causing head trauma.

Since the brain is active while we are sleeping, it would probably be a good idea so shut those video games off at least on an hour before bed . . . and no scary movies before covering up. Everyone knows bad dreams cause a bad nights sleep. Your child and his or her brain are a team, just as you and your brain are. If you do your best to protect it, it will do its best to keep your child happy and healthy for years to come.
