Very often while we evaluate other people we use one common saying - that they miss the first 5 years of their life. What exactly means that and why those first 5 years are so important?

A scientific research of University of California shows that 90% of a child's brain develops in the first 5 years of life. A number of factors influence early brain development. These important factors include: daily / regular experiences, parent responsiveness, nutrition, physical activity, genetics… and of course love.
