Nurturing Mum

Not that I need to be told why I should always strive to be loving and nurturing towards my kids. 

But this is another article to remind me. 

Though the sample size is way too small, the conclusion that 'school children whose mothers nurtured them lovingly have a larger hippocampus, a key brain area vital for learning, memory and response to stress' is nonetheless interesting.

Thanks for this post. It could not have been more timely. I just exploded at Amanda this morning and felt I should have been more patient with her.

You are welcome, Wendy. I can fully empathize. It is easier said than done to be patient all the time, despite our best intentions. We can only try our best and remind ourselves to keep trying.
