Would you build an Ikea table without the instruction book? Probably not. Then why are we raising kids without knowing how their brain works? Isn't it nonsense?
Most of us know how to feed children in an healthy way, but what do we know about raising healthy brains? What kind of experiences are important to provide to children, how the brain learns. BRAINIOUS is a documentary that shares "neuro-knowledge" for parents and educators in order to help children thrive and reach their full potential.
If we really want children to master their lives we need to teach them how to handle their brains!
The film touches on themes of attachment, mindset, and the way that the brain learns, topics that are rarely taught to parents, or any adults for that matter. One of the best parenting films I’ve seen. MOTHERING MAGAZINE
I learned a huge parenting nugget in the film that I will take with me for the rest of my life. MATTHEW, father of two boys.
The most important thing I learned with the film is being more patient with my daughter when she is frustrated,I learned that it helps her cognitive understanding to work out the problem herself, rather than me just giving her the answers. KEVIN, father of two girls.
