CONNECTIONS

How to grow a happy & confident child from birth

Webinar on Wednesday 6th June, 7.30pm

The first two years of your baby's life are crucial in helping them grow up to be happy and confident. Early experiences set the connections in their brain that will help them with their emotions, confidence, sense of security, and ability to learn.

Happy, confident and secure babies/children find learning easier, have perseverance, and resilience for life's challenges.

40% of school children in the UK have insecure attachment. This impacts on their ability to learn, to build relationships and to regulate their emotions.

There are six key ways in which parents help their baby's brain to grow, and lead to being happy and confident. You are probably doing these already, without knowing how important they are. 

Some of the prevailing attitudes and advice to parents actually go against these key ways.  Some advice suggests parents should ignore their babies at night or not give eye contact. This can have a detrimental effect on your baby's brain, stopping it growing, and laying down connections for insecurity. 

Plenty of Victorian era advice suggests that if we pick our babies up, and respond to their distress we are 'making a rod for our own backs'.This is untrue. Babies who are held more cry less. Children who are responded to when they cry are less clingy when they are older. Responding to your baby leads to secure attachment, which is the foundation for a happy and successful life. 

When your baby is born her/his brain is about 20% the size of an adult's.

By the time they reach their third birthday it will have grown to 80% of an adult's!
