"Did you know that the right brain develops first? It does so by the time children are 3-4 years of age. The left brain, on the other hand, doesn’t fully come online until children are approximately seven years old; hence the first seven years being recognized as such a critical period in child development...The right brain is indeed the playground, or at least, it connects us to it. Let children dwell in this most natural state through their unstructured play, and all its derivatives such as doodling, curiosity, wonder and imagination. People who have a healthy right brain can better use their left brain tools in positive ways. That is the purpose of the left-logical brain: to serve the right brainβ€”doing serves being"

100% easier said than done but so important to acknowledge and remember.

I am So guilty of having high expectations for my own children with regards to behavior, manners, empathy, respect - but reminders are good.

They're little, and its part of our role to demonstrate and teach. Its very easy to suggest our little ones need to work on self-regulation and its a catchy phrase atm.

BUT...

Lets substitute self-reg for co-reg! Now thats feeling better already!

https://monadelahooke.com/challenging-behaviors-why-we-shouldnt-expect-kids-to-self-regulate-too-soon/

"Self-regulation is a developmental process that we can nurture and encourage in one way: through the experience of emotional co-regulation with caring and attuned adults."

"We can very accurately predict future outcomes for young children – and it has nothing to do with the alphabet,” says Nathan. β€œIt all comes down to their disposition about themselves as a learner: what really matters for a child under seven is how clever he thinks he is – how he feels about learning.”

The challenge for us as parents? To offer assistance and support – I am here if you need help, love – but to refrain from taking over (or getting cross), even as we register the imminent collapse of the Lego tower and, infuriatingly, the need to start from square one.

Neuroscience educator Nathan Wallis explains why child-led free play is fundamental to the optimal development of the brain. By Kate Barber. As adults, we understand the word β€˜play’ to mean the opposite of serious work. The idiom β€˜child’s play’ refers to something that is easy ...
