Words can make your baby smarter

ThriveFul is the easiest way to become a better parent, by scheduling more frequent and diverse interactions with your baby



  • Every $1 invested in high-quality early childhood education saves taxpayers at least $7 in social costs later. That investment also increases economic and educational outcomes for children. High-quality early childhood education is central to closing the achievement gap. The achievement gap is the difference in academic skills (such as math and literacy) between socioeconomic groups.

  • A robust body of research has confirmed what parents have always known by instinct: that magic in everyday moments - showing affection, comforting, and playing with children - helps build strong healthy brains. The first three years of a child’s life are uniquely important because this is the most sensitive period for brain development. A child’s brain undergoes an amazing period of development from birth to three—producing 700 new neural connections every second.

  • "A study by researchers Betty Hart and Todd Risley in 1995 found that some children heard thirty million fewer words by their 4th birthdays than others. The children who heard more words were better prepared when they entered school. These same kids, when followed into third grade, had bigger vocabularies, were stronger readers, and got higher test scores.  Every parent has the words, the language, the nurturance necessary to build their baby's brain."

The idea of ThriveFul – an app that is able to track the number of words you speak to your child and motivate you to find time to interact with them more often – is made possible by research and new technologies.

Watch our CEO Dr. Lamont Tang explaining how the idea of ThriveFul was born and why he thinks it can help parents to make their children thrive intellectually and socially.
