Children are the most vulnerable component of any society. When properly raised, they will benefit the community in the best way possible. However, if their parents and teachers fail to bring them up properly, they may face severe consequences. Therefore, when one talks about the upbringing of the children, one of the most important things to look after is to cater to their psychological needs so that they may develop with a psychologically sound mind. Equally important, individuals should especially consider the psychological and mental development areas during the children's pre-school years. During this period, children rapidly adapt to the changes in their surroundings, and their observing and comprehending skills are at an all-time high, which then impacts their psychological development.
