We are back for episode two of a three-part series on brain-based parenting with Dr. Crystal Collier, psychotherapist and author of The NeuroWhereAbouts Guide. In the first episode, we covered how the brain is formed and how to understand age-defined, executive function. In this second episode we cover how to protect that brain, the role of dopamine in human development, and something called the hedonic threshold. Don’t panic! Dr. Collier’s easy manner and clear ways of explaining these complex topics will help all parents understand the opportunities to support their kids.
Review the lists and graphs that we mention here.
