The Growing Brain

 

This is an amazing video of neurogenesis. It’s very encouraging to know that our brains continue to form new connections and prune old ones. This means that every time we respond calmly to our developmentally traumatized children we are teaching them that parents are safe instead of scary. Consistently calm parenting will eventually cause the negative connections to be pruned off since they are not used. This should give us all hope for change.
