Cognition is the mental process or faculty that children use to aquire knowledge. To think is to be able to aquire and to apply knowledge. By using conscious thought and memory, children think about themselves, the world, and others. Educating the thinking child is a critical function of parents and teachers…

Cognition is related not only to the developing mind but also to all areas of the child’s growth. Young thinkers are at work no matter what they are doing. For example, physical/motor development is also a cognitive process.
