How Does Love Affect a Child’s Future? …it has to do with the brain.

It has been scientifically shown that young children that have been nurtured (get positive attention, love and attachment from their mother and other caregivers) versus ones that have been neglected (don’t have mothers/caregivers 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.
