It has been scientifically shown that young children that have been nurtured (get positive attention, love and attachment from their mother) versus ones that have been neglected (don’t have mothers that are responsive to their basic needs and don’t form loving attachments) develop larger and more connected brains. Children who are neglected struggle greatly in forming meaningful relationships and responding to kindness, are more likely to become addicted to drugs, involved in violent crimes, be unemployed and be dependent on state benefits says, Dr. Bruce D. Perry MD, PHD. What needs to happen to ensure kids are treated with respect, love and nurturing at home? Can the outcomes of neglected children be changed with Empowerment Education at school? Yes!
