THE SCIENCE BEHIND BABYBRAINS
Parenting pushes us out of our comfort zone. Motherhood in particular is a life, body and brain changing tsunami.
The skills we acquired in life, prior to expecting a new addition, are likely to be pretty useless when raising a little human. Most of us have been trained to follow a set of rules and execute a set of instructions. Regardless of how successful we have been in our educational and professional lives, we soon realise that the strategies we have been using so far
need some serious updating if we are to keep our sanity and be the best possible parents.
What we do know is this: There is no user manual for a baby. No universal set of rules that can be learnt and applied. As parents, this begins with a journey of discovery as each lesson and experience is encountered and overcome. And try to focus on what we really want, which is to enjoy being a parent.
At BabyBrains, we are a platform where scientists, parents and children exchange insights on the brain and its development. We seek to empower parents in making better decisions with better tools to be more effective and fulfilled in their relationship with their children.
The first tool BabyBrains® uses to work towards its vision of a society with happier and more fulfilled parents and children is science—more specifically, the kind of scientific insight that can empower your decision-making. We aim to offer you knowledge that sheds light on your child as a whole and allows you to figure out comprehensive, effective and long-lasting solutions.
Raising a child is a great opportunity for parents to connect back to that fun way of ‘doing science’ that we all know from our childhood days. It's being willing to experiement in your thirst and quest for knowledge, making you and your child experience 'curiousity' and 'fun' every step of the way.
To help you keep Science and Fun at the core of our interactions, even in the most sleep-deprived days, BabyBrains® proposes the acronym L.O.V.E. These four letters will remind you of the core actions of effective and respectful parenting. Learn through, Observation, Validate through, Experience.
If you complete one of our Parent's Workshops, we will provide you with these tools in a safe space to learn, grow and ask the important questions. To give you confidence in your parenting.
