Brain Development Matters thoroughly explains the impact that early trauma has on a child's brain chemistry, brain development and sensory processing. Once parents understand how their child's brain is connected to his behaviors, these behaviors begin to make more sense. Instead of feeling defied and disrespected, a parent may now see how this behavior is rooted in how the child is experiencing their world. This paradigm shift can open new doors for more empathetic and effective parenting. With a thorough understanding of brain development, parents are better prepared to learn how to more successfully intervene and shape their child's troubling behaviors.
