Childhood Emotional Development
Did you know that between the ages of 1-2, your baby’s brain is developing? The stories you tell you child during this age, are critical to their developing childhood. Stress is so rampant, that we ofte see young children present to us with agitation and irritation. The brain is programmed since before birth, to reach to stimuli, and added stimuli impacts development in childhood. In a fast world, we need our children to grow up healthy and empowered.
The Stories You Tell
Sadly, parents today are pre-occupied with their phones, technology and everything under the sun. Their child usually is handed a phone to play with in exchange for silence. The story you tell your child, when you hand them a device, is that you don’t have time for them. Parents also find it easy to scream and yell at their babies in the same age range. The saddest thing to hear is “SHUT UP”. If you say this to your child, and think they will no remember it, here is what you could cause.
- A child afraid to speak.
- Fear of other adults.
- Throat issues.
- Consistent need for attention.
Childhood Nutrition and Brain Development
Parents should pay attention to the food intake of their child. Brain development in childhood can be impacted by food and the stories you tell them. When your child has a nutritional deficiency, he or she may behave out of the norm. To keep your child happy and healthy, remember, natural food is always best. Many children are born under stress, and they show symptoms quickly around age 2 or 3. Take some time to watch your child after they eat to determine if their behavior is normal, or somehow out of balance.
