Your Child's Developing Brain
Did you know that the brain's prefrontal cortex does not fully develop until someone reaches their mid-20's? The prefrontal cortex is better known as our "rational brain" and is responsible for executive functions including regulating emotions, impulse control, weighing consequences, and empathy.
Here are some ideas for supporting the development of these skills in your kiddo-
Maintain a consistent routine
Make sure your kiddo is getting enough sleep
Use clear & concise language
Physical activity & exercise
Yoga & Mindfulness practices
