Did you know that every time we interact with our children, their brains are growing the foundation upon which all future learning is built?

Sometimes, as parents, we feel too busy. But we can decide to help our children during everyday moments that we already have. We know it makes a difference.  When parents respond to and talk with young children, we are growing brain neural connections. The first few years of life, 1,000,000 new neural connections are formed in the brain every second! Hard to imagine, but you read that right!

What can I do?  We all have the power to turn everyday moments into Brain Building moments!  Connect, Talk More, and Take Turns talking back and forth with your child in the everyday moments we already have- mealtime, getting dressed, diaper changes, reading a book, riding in the car. Scientists call it serve and return.
