Study reveals: The more you hug your kids, the more their brains develop 10/22/2021

Study reveals: The more you hug your kids, the more their brains develop

Study reveals: The more you hug your kids, the more their brains develop Much more important than we thought it was.


This photo depicts why it’s so important to have your kids in healthy footwear. Shoes can either help or hinder proper development, strength and growth in your young ones.

To allow your child’s feet to move, flex and develop properly, there are a few key features to look for in their shoes:

🦶 a wide toe box, as pictured here, which allows their toes ample room to spread out
🦶 a flexible sole to allow full range of motion and to strengthen their feet through movement
🦶 very little to no heel rise to allow proper lengthening and growth of tendons and ligaments
🦶 security through the heel/ankle to prevent the need to grip in order to keep the shoe on (no flip flops)

These features of a minimalist shoe do not necessarily lack support in the shoe, rather they do not restrict normal/natural movement or posture.

The benefits of healthy footwear for your child can lead to:

👣increased strength in the feet and legs
👣enhanced proprioception or sensory awareness which leads to better stability, strength and self awareness
👣brain and nervous system development through sensing surroundings and movement
👣 improved gait – the way one walks

The benefits of letting kids go barefoot are pretty important. You don’t want to hinder development and gait by strapping on thick, rigid shoes. Minimalist shoes still allow your child to experience proper movement, even when they have to wear shoes.

Research shows that cereal before bed does not significantly change their wake ups. They still wake to breastfeed. This is because waking to breastfeed is not just about filling their belly. It can be because they are cold, scared or just need some extra cuddles. ❤️


What's the Hurry?
Parents and teachers want the best for children, they want them to succeed so they set about teaching reading, writing and maths before the child's sixth birthday - often years before. But what if those parents and teachers haven't been given the whole picture from the world wide research? What if they think early reading and writing constitutes "the best" for their children?
What happens then is their children spend hours and hours and hours training to gain skills and this has two big down sides: The most obvious is that hours spent toiling with numbers and letters are waking hours stolen from the more natural ways of growing the child's brains and unfolding their intelligence, hours stolen from play.
The second big downside is that if they don't succeed at the given tasks, subconsciously they perceive themselves to be failures at learning. This is very bad news, especially for boys because nearly every child who enters the Reading Recovery programme at six years of age is a boy child. Since future success is hinged on your perception of yourself as a learner, this has huge consequences for the child and ultimately for society.
So really, it is up to us as the adults to find out what BEST matches child development (and gives great results), then adjusting our behaviour accordingly. A good book - "Too Much Too Soon?: Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood".

Behaviour is communication
"I am being horrible because I feel horrible.
Please help me to feel better."

"In the relationship with the child, the quality of the relationship always lies with the adult."
Kirsten McNeil

We only need to think back to year 10 (4th form) when we were at school to know the truth of this quote. Same kids in your class and very different behaviour for different teachers, depending on the quality of the relationship the teacher had created with you and your classmates. That's why the people skills of getting along harmoniously with others regardless of the situation are number one for parents. When we work at our own skills in times of conflict and when we are triggered we model quality relating to our children.

In Conscious Discipline, we provide two positive choices instead of one positive choice and one negative choice.

Research shows that when children make a choice based on their own intrinsic desires, it motivates them and integrates the brain. Choices also provide children with an empowering sense of agency and responsibility. #iHeartCD
