The brain is the most spectacular tool we have ever been given. Understanding a little more about how the brain learns and processes things can give us an incredible advantage in helping our kids to learn. It can help with everyday habits and thought patterns and so much more. A parent who teaches and trains with the brain in mind has a secret weapon that we can pass on to our kids. As we learn to harness the incredible power of "brain ruts" in neuroplasticity, we can avoid a lot of wasted time and energy. We can teach our kids to work WITH their brains instead of against them.
