I am afraid I have irrevocably ruined my 6 year old son's will to think by giving him overly challenging thinking tasks. Is that effect even possible?
Not likely: Without knowing more information cannot say it the tasks would even be considered over challenging for his age. Perhaps it was more the manner in which they were presented and not the task. Children of that age should be encouraged to be curious and learning should be fun. Physical activity is key and taking a walk outside as way to stimulate learning is much better than playing computer games. ...Read more

To answer that, I: Would need to know what the actual BP is. BP's in children are often/almost always lower than the normal adult range. So, what you may be thinking is a "low BP, " may in fact be normal for a 6 year old. If the BP was low for a child, they would probably have symptoms, such as lightheadedness, weakness and wouldn't feel well.
