Day Twelve – The ages and stages of your child’s brain development

When a child begins to talk we mistaken their ability to process life as being far more advanced than it actually is.

If our brain is not really fully developed until the age of 25, is your child really at the emotional and mental stage of life you think they are?

Perhaps their behaviour is actually age appropriate and they are just needing the tools to advance to the next stage of understanding life.

Today’s lesson gives you a quick run down of what’s happening in your growing child’s brain development and behaviours you can expect.

Day 30 – How to save our kids from a life of stress, depression and anxiety
As we draw this 30 day project to a close, I want to recap for you the essence of what we need to do, be and act upon as parents, that will provide the very best environment for our kids to grow up in, so they know how to deal with life’s inevitable ups and downs.
Day 29 – Old School results using new school approaches. Here’s how…
Today’s lesson talks about these changes and what it means for how parents approach their child’s behaviour and arm them with the tools they’ll need to adults in THEIR lifetime, not the lifetime we grew up in as kids, which is no longer relevant.
Day 28 – Adolescence is starting at 8 years old. Are you ready?
As our fast paced world evolves and the exposure your child has to life experiences, so too has their brain development. We’re seeing kids move into the adolescence years much sooner than 13 years old. Now, it’s beginning as young as 8 years old! That’s scary, right?
