Teresa Belton, a research associate at East Anglia Universoty on the UK says " The capacity to day-dream enables a person to fill empty time with an enjoyable activity. In her forthcoming paper, she adds that " children who engage in more day dreaming score higher on experimental measures of creativity. Malia Mason, a neuro-scientist said that " day -dreaming builds on the fundamental capacity to project ourselves into imaginary situations ,like the future. Without that skill, we'll be pretty limited creatures".
So switch off the television and circle some down time or empty slot in your child's day. It may help him boost his or her creativity !
