One of the very best scientific predictors for how any child turns out–in terms of happiness, academic success, leadership skills, and meaningful relationships–is whether at least one adult in their life has consistently shown up for them.
Today on The Broken Brain Podcast, I’m joined by my good friend Dr. Tina Bryson to talk about what it means to be present and really show up for our kids, even if our own caregiver wasn’t really present. We discuss how to develop secure attachment in your kids and how providing a calm, safe presence can radically change how a child’s brain develops. We also talk about how every child needs to feel what Tina calls the Four S’s: safe, seen, soothed, and secure, and strategies for implementing them into your child’s daily life.
