As parents, we know that each child is different, including how they learn. Because we all learn differently, how can parents set their children up for success? Learning more about the brain and how it works is a great place to start. This can help you better understand how your child learns. We’re excited about today’s podcast guest because she gives us a deeper look into the brain and how we learn. If there is anything that parents can do to help their children have a brighter future, we want to do it! Here’s how.
