Parenting is something we all have experienced. Our parents parenting us; we parenting our children. And although many people teach about parenting, the fact is that in today’s fast-paced technological society, relatively few do well when it comes to handling their own children.
Having a child is a privilege because it is life happening through us. However, many times as parents we knowingly or unknowingly take wrongful advantage of this privilege.
Our brains are plastic in the sense of the dictionary definition: “capable of being shaped or formed”. In biology, plasticity refers to the capacity of living things to mould themselves to new conditions.
Neuroplasticity implies that you have the ability to change your brain; its structure and the way it functions based on your life experiences and repeated behaviours, emotions, and thoughts. Research has proved that we can play an active part in this process. And the good news is that you can facilitate this change at any age.
