Science has shown us how important it is for us all to feel connected to loved ones. This is even more true for babies and young children. Every time we interact with a young child, 1000s of new brain connections are made. This builds the brain systems that your child will use to manage stress, understand language, develop confidence, and learn new things – for their entire lives!
Little ones love to play, so play along and copy what they do – spending some fun time together can make you both feel good now, while helping them to feel secure and grow.
