Neurons are like “wires” of the brain. They form connections with thousands of other neurons, making an immense network of over a trillion connections. As your child grows, these connections become much more elaborate and eﬃcient, allowing for massive amounts of information processing and development of cognitive, motor, language, and problem-solving skills. This helps your child learn all kinds of things, from a new word to a new song.
Even if a child’s attention span is still growing, an early introduction to mindfulness can help them with lifelong emotional regulation skills.
