Taking decisions that suit our best interests and maximize our profits is a challenge we face several times, almost every day. Researchers say we start taking these decisions when we are as young as 5 years old. According to a new research by Valerie Dufour and colleagues from the National Center for Scientific Research in France, 5-year-old children start to maximize their profits - in cookies, much similar to the show 'Deal or No Deal'.

Many high school students take up jobs apart from in addition to going to school, and there are arguments from some that taking up a job is good for at-risk youths.

In a new study, researchers with the help of brain-monitoring technology have found that the brains of infants respond to faces in a very similar way as adult brains do, even while the rest of their visual system lags behind.

Psychological therapies may be beneficial for children suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that occurs as a result of traumatic events in life including child abuse, a new study suggests.

The home is a child's first school and his mother, the first teacher. A large part of a child's personality is already shaped even before he starts going to school. Also, irrespective of how much time a child spends in his school or with his classmates, his/her behavior and choices are to a great extent influenced by family environment.
