Did You Know?

During an infants first year, the human brain triples in weight. By their first birthday, 50% of all lifelong learning is complete and by their second birthday, 75% of all lifelong learning is complete.

And by their third birthday the quality of family bonding has hard wired the child’s brain for peace or pathology.

From kindergarten through Grade 12, fear destabilizes synaptic connections, which are crucial for optimum cognitive, language, motor and moral development. A child raised in a fear-based family struggles to attend, learn and comply, and thus disrupts class instruction, depletes support services, and denies the optimum promise of that child to himself, and to our shared future.

In other words, the brain cannot learn if the heart hurts. In other words, kids need roots to fly.
