Engaging the Brain for Optimal Development
On any given day, we may experience moments of high emotion in reaction to an event, or we find ourselves trying to control everyone and everything around us. Either way, our mental well-being is in danger, especially if we find ourselves stuck in either scenario for long. It can be difficult for children [JS1] to get unstuck without some help from a parent or other adult. To give children the support they need when faced with this, parents must have a basic understanding of their child’s brain [JS2] development. By incorporating this knowledge into interactions, parents can support children in learning and growing through a whole-brain approach.
