The Love Connection

Did you know that according to some of the latest neurological research, the brain is most interested in love, belonging, community and connection. This might well be the most important starting point for learning.

And what better place than the home to foster a great learning environment? Who cares more and loves their children more than the parents in a healthy home environment?

We all know from experience that when we are nervous or stressed, we have a hard time remembering or retaining information. It is the same with children.

How would you rate your home environment? It is fostering love, belonging, community, and connection? Do your children know that who they are is more important than what they are able to do or how well they do in their schoolwork? How do they know this?

A recommended read for  parents of children of any age is: How We Love Our Kids by Milan and Kay Yerkovich. Learn about the 5 Love Styles of Parenting and how simple changes can make a big difference in how you love your children.
