Velociraptor, Spinosaurus, Tyrannosaurus Rex: Do these names ring a bell to your ear? Do you often hear them from your kids, who seem to have memorized all kinds of dinosaurs?
Well, you are not alone. Many parents have reportedly observed their child’s obsession with dinosaurs, which should make you proud because, according to some studies, children with a high interest in dinosaurs and other complex details have higher intelligence.
According to Psychology Spot, the phenomenon of children exhibiting incredible knowledge about dinosaurs is called “intense interest.” It is developed during early childhood between 2 to 6 years of age and carries that dedication and passion as they grow older.
While “intense interest” also covers interests in other things like vehicles, astronomy, and machines, the most popular obsession among kids focuses on prehistoric reptiles.
But there is no need to worry as this not-so-common interest is not weird but, in fact, beneficial for children’s cognitive development.
A 2008 study shows that intense interest helps a child have better attention span, get persistent in learning, and develop more profound information-processing skills. It simply means that your kids’ obsession with dinosaurs makes them smarter and better learners.
