The Effect Of A Hit To The Head As A Child On Children’s Intelligence?
In the afternoon I want to ask, my younger brother once fell when I was carrying him, at that time I carried him in his standing position so my brother had a pretty hard nose until his head hit and a lump on the left of his forehead. my younger sibling’s age was less than 1 year old at that time now my younger brother is 10 years old and he often has trouble calculating and understanding his lessons, what is that because he fell when he was a child?

The impact on the head to some extent affects how the brain is in the cavity of the head. However, this head injury will really depend on the severity of what happened or how much shaking that occurred. Because the skull bones themselves are hard enough to withstand the impact in minimizing the severity of the head injury that occurs.
If there is indeed a disturbance in the forebrain area or known as the frontal lobe, it can cause cognitive and emotional disorders. This can be seen apart from the disruption in the child's ability to understand a sentence or solve a problem, there is also a disturbance in behavior or thinking.
If indeed this condition is felt to be quite disturbing, then you should do a direct examination with a pediatrician or a child psychologist to get further and more detailed examinations.
Meanwhile you can help maintain good nutritional intake for your younger sibling's brain by meeting food intake that is high in omega 3, folic acid, vitamin B 6, vitamin B12 and vitamin E. Some examples of good foods to consume are:
Milk and yogurt
