- Smarter kids:Our society worships talent, and many people assume that possessing superior intelligence or ability—along with confidence in that ability—is a recipe for success. During the first ten years of a child's life, the brain forms trillions of connections, and is the most malleable it will ever be. The brain develops important connections that influence other abilities, like math and verbal skills or the ability to empathize with other kids.
