Most parents are in a dilemma about the right age to put their kids into an Abacus course. And when they try to get the answers from their network of family and friends, they get 'n' number of answers which confuses them even more.
This blog would answer the question, "Which is the right age to start Abacus for kids?" and hopefully help those parents seeking an appropriate and relevant answer.
Everyone knows that all the companies have been providing Abacus classes to children between the age of 4 to 14 years, dividing the whole program into 8 to 10 levels. Knowing why this age is chosen for training the child for Abacus learning now becomes severely essential.
The scientific reason is that 75% of the development of the Brain's Neocortex occurs between this age. Therefore, a child getting into an Abacus program early better utilizes the functions of the left and right brain by simultaneously using both hands. This process promotes whole brain development. Thus, it enhances skills like visualization, listening, concentration, logical reasoning, memorizing and recalling and develops superior mental math abilities.
Children between the ages of 4-14 years are absorbent, so they adapt early to whatever is taught. They can learn and adapt to various practical virtues and enhance their performance to make them competent for future challenges. Also, they are not loaded with too many responsibilities, and we can polish their minds.
Some advice to be considered by parents before making the kids join the Abacus program:
· Since the course is of 8 to 10 levels, therefore initiate the course for your kid in time so that they are comfortable in managing the school syllabus and Abacus training together
Ensure your child practices Abacus questions for a few minutes daily to get effective results and better performance.
· Choose a course from a company that understands your child's psychology and teaches them through innovative methods without giving them mental stress and pressure
· A small child's mind is like a blank paper, so before you allow something to be written on it, make sure it is practical, knowledgeable and would help them in future
