"What if I was to tell you that a game of peek-a-boo could change the world?"
asks seven-year-old Molly Wright, one of the youngest-ever TED speakers.
Breaking down the research-backed ways parents and caregivers can support
children's healthy brain development, Wright highlights the benefits of play
on lifelong learning, behavior and well-being, sharing effective strategies to
help all kids thrive by the age of five. She's joined onstage by one-year-old
Ari and his dad, Amarjot, who help illustrate her big ideas about brain
science. (This TED Talk was produced in collaboration with Minderoo Foundation
as an educational tool for parents and caregivers around the world and is
supported by UNICEF.)
