"Inspire to Re-wire"

March 24th, 2011 | Posted in Edify by

More kids than ever are suffering from depression, anger, ADD, ADHD, eating disorders and a number of other social and emotional issues. Why?

Why are  kids bringing guns to school? Why is violence so acceptable today. Where has the empathy gone?

Have you ever wondered what our world would be like if our kids were not so stressed out.   They are learning each day to function at warp speed. No down time. 

School, TV, Internet, video games and social media keep them so busy they have no inclination to  add a few moments of quiet time to their day.

Today I am so very inspired by the MindUp program. The HawnFoundation is working so hard to get our nation’s schools to adopt and teach our children this curriculim.  Take a look at this video below and let me know what you think.

    How exciting it was to listen to the MindUp video. It makes perfect sense that encourage and engender brain knowledge in our children. It is equally important that adults–parents, grandparents, teachers,and anyone central to a growing child’s world, also undertake a systematic re-wiring of their brain. An aging brain can atrophy, and it is critical to maintain both physical and neurological fitness. How else can we possibly provide necessary stimuli to a mindful child? Indeed we can teach old dogs new tricks.
