Real Solutions for Families That Reduce Stress & Create Great Connections
If you’re interested in adding tools to your toolbox that help decrease stress and strengthen your family, this show is a must. We spoke with two leaders in childhood development and family empowerment, Deborah McNelis and Dr. Paula Fellingham.
Deborah McNelis is an early brain development specialist and the creator of the Neuro-Nurturing Interaction Packets. These simple, effective activities parents do with their children, support brain development, and decrease the effects of trauma and stress. She shared:
· The 4 elements of Neuro-Nurturing to help parents nurture the development with their child in a way that truly meets their needs include:
· How Neuro-Nurturing not only builds confidence and self-esteem for children, but for parents as well.
· How simple activities can be part of normal life, rather than adding more to a parent’s to-do list.
“Every child is worthwhile,” say McNelis, “but helping THEM realize that is critically important.”
