The recording of our first weekly Live Chat is below. Watch the video or listen to the audio.
Things we talked about:
Why can kids sometimes focus (video games, Legos, etc) but at other times not?
If the focused brain gets stronger from use, does the relaxed brain also get stronger with use?
How do you decide on medication?
How do you practice using the focus side of the brain?
What natural supplements are good for focus?
Help for a 12-year old shut-down learner? (Lots of good info here!)
