the mind of a child

In the first three years, neural pathways proliferate wildly as each new experience and stimulus lead to the growth of new connections. The more connections that are made, the more possibilities that exist. Beginning about age three, the connections are pruned and refined, and consolidated with the result that only those that are well used and meaningfully connected to the child’s life remain.
