Did you know ........ After eight months a child exposed to a nurturing and stimulating environment may already have 1,000 trillion connections created?
As Printable #1 shared, it is the experiences a child has that physically wires and grows the brain. In the photo below, you can see the real difference experience makes to a developing brain.
This week, printable #2 explains a bit more about the growth of the brain and the needed experiences that lead to healthy connections. As a child is provided with opportunities to interact with people and their environment, brain cells make the connections that wire the brain.
WE ARE DOING IT!! Through working together and sharing we ARE making a difference!
I can not be more thrilled to have such a positive response to the printables already!! Numerous people throughout the world have read and shared the first printable already. I am SO very glad to know they are so beneficial! These are just a couple of the messages I have received.

"This information is so useful we use it in parent group discussions and get great conversations going."
"Just watching my 3 yr old son play and thinking about how I can see his genius--thanks to all you've taught. Thank you for taking the valuable time to research and teach about our children's TRUE potential!!!"
