Imagination

Imagination in children refers to their ability to form mental images, stories, and scenarios in their minds that are not based on real-life experiences. It is a crucial aspect of child development and allows them to explore their thoughts and emotions, understand the world around them, and create something new and unique. Research has shown that imagination is positively associated with cognitive and social development in children and can play a role in developing their creativity, problem-solving skills, and emotional intelligence. Encouraging imagination and play can also positively impact a child's mental and emotional well-being.

However, as they grow into teenagers and adults, their imagination is replaced by the needs of the real world. They may forget the beautiful image of the horizon where their mental health grew up.

He usually takes 10 minutes to freshen up. then I give him the first glass of water and two biscuits to start the day. Thereafter we read his books (either textbook or reference) and request him to read loudly. I correct his pronunciation and maintain
