The Science Of Mother Love

At Little River School we continue to present articles that educate, enrich and enlighten the people closely involved with an infant’s  brain development.  (Infants are categorized as children from 0 – 3 years of age)

The articles we post on brain development do not advocate a certain style of parenting. They are posted for the important information they contain.  We as parents, educators and researchers must avail ourselves to all the information.  We can decipher the information and take from it what we will, the most important reason for posting these sites is to heighten our awareness.  This is what will make a difference in our child’s life.

This is a very useful article for parents and educators that contains some serious information about the mother-child relationship. It provides some insight into the science behind the effect of a mother’s touch.

To mothers holding their newborn babies it will come as little surprise that the ‘decade of the brain’ has lead science to the wisdom of the mother’s heart.
