A child is a being under construction. There are phases of its construction in which it becomes more sensitive to the reception of certain stimuli. And the truth is that either these stimuli (kinesthetic, social, proprioceptive, etc.) are provided at a certain stage of their life, or, forever, it will not be possible to acquire with the same efficiency. As parents, we must be aware of this process and also be aware that we are all part of a team that is responsible for something as important as ... a Child.
