Many factors affect your child’s ability to learn. These can include anything from difficult subjects, lack of interest, to sleep deficiency, and even improper hydration. A dehydrated brain and body perform up to 15 percent slower than a well-hydrated one. That is a considerable difference. The Tutoring Center, Bear DE wants you to know about the importance of keeping your children hydrated.

The Importance of Hydration for a Learning Brain

Just like the rest of the body, the brain is made up mostly of water, 80 percent water to be more precise. Water is necessary for all neurological transmissions. When the brain doesn’t receive the proper hydration, it loses its ability to receive and transmit information. It's less likely that your children will be able to concentrate, pay attention, or memorize information if they’re thirsty. The thirstier they get, the more brain power they lose. In fact, by the time your children or you start feeling thirsty, your mental performance has already decreased about 10 percent. Hydration doesn’t come from drinking sugary drinks or sports drinks, it comes from drinking water. Feeling dehydrated will not only reduce concentration, it can also your child feel dizzy and tired, factors which can also affect their school performance.

Common Signs of Dehydration

Pay close attention to your children, and if they’re showing any of this signs they’re probably dehydrated.
  • Thirst
  • Dizziness
  • Dry or sticky mouth
  • Cramps
  • Heatstroke
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
Remember that the best way to prevent dehydration is by drinking the recommended 6-8 glasses of water per day. They should be drinking water even if they’re not thirsty. They can also remain hydrated by eating fresh fruits and keeping a balanced diet. Be sure to follow this suggestions yourself since children learn through example.
