Cognitive Development. In addition to rapid physical growth, young children also exhibit significant development of their cognitive abilities. Piaget thought that children’s ability to understand objects—such as learning that a rattle makes a noise when shaken—was a cognitive skill that develops slowly as a child matures and interacts with the environment.   A loving environment impacts cognitive development in children Providing a loving environment is an essential factor in the cognitive growth of your children. An attentive environment with both physical and verbal expressions of love will create an ideal atmosphere for the development of your child’s emotional skills and build a solid bond.

Piaget’s influence on psychology has been profound. His pathbreaking investigations and theories of cognitive development have set child psychology moving in entirely new directions. His bold speculations have provided the inspiration for the work of others. His studies have been the subject of many books and countless articles. And, significantly, his influence has spread to 4/5(3). Another study examined children at 6, 12, 24, and 40 months and found faster rates of cognitive development when mothers were sensitive to children’s focus of attention and interests. Research by Hirsh-Pasek and Burchinal [ 82 ] affirms the relationship between sensitive and responsive adults and language and cognitive outcomes using the Cited by:
