All of us are born with a memory but we do have to practice using it well in order to keep it working efficiently. Our memories work in a couple of different ways. Short term memory is used to remember small amounts of information for a brief period of time. For example, your mom or dad asks you to remember a phone number for them while they get a pen to write it down, you use your short term memory. It means that you will most likely remember the phone number for just a few minutes. Long term memory is used to remember information even years later. For example, people might remember their first day of school, or a particularly exciting birthday party, or their favorite childhood toy. There are many fun games that kids can play online to improve and test their memory skills. And as always, please no wagering.
