DID YOU KNOW?
  • The development of a child's brain architecture
    depends on the establishment of healthy attachments
    with their primary caregivers.
  • Toxic stress in early childhood is associated with
    persistent effects on the nervous system that can
    damage developing brain architecture & lead to
    lifelong problems in learning, behavior, and both
    physical and mental health.
  • Children who grow up in seriously troubled families are
    prone to the development of behavioral disorders and
    conduct problems.
  • Animal studies have shown that the quality of the
    mother-infant relationship can influence gene
    expression.
