In the News:  Children’s brains develop in relationships
November 1, 2016 Poverty Facts

Children’s brains develop in relationships. The developing brain is built from the bottom up, simple skills that create the foundation for more complex connections and skills that develop later. For the brain to construct this strong foundation, babies rely on adults who are available to respond consistently.

Parents who are stressed by erratic work schedules and are struggling to make ends meet are often less able to provide positive experiences for their small children. Living in poverty can create physical, mental and emotional trauma for both parent and child.
