The National Institute of Mental Health suggests the brain doesn’t fully mature until our mid-late twenties. The frontal lobe, responsible for judgment, planning, assessing risks, and decision-making is the last region to complete development around age 30. So, what does this mean for us, as parents?
It means we need to be patient and compassionate with our kids. It means children are often incapable of the unrealistic expectations we place on them. It means that no matter how smart we think our three-year-old is, no matter how much we wish he could rationalise and reason, he simply doesn’t have the brain of an adult. We may hope kids will behave with self-discipline and self-control, but until their brains mature, it is our responsibility to guide them

Jon has been inspiring me by using his social media to help motivate himself to do what he loves (he loves movement and has been posting the coolest movement workouts! Check him out @jon.ritter ). I decided I would try to do the same, but with what I love: early childhood development. 
We do lots of play with Leo, but I have been getting pretty lazy lately and just setting him up to do the same stuff every day. While this isn't a problem exactly, I figure I spent all this money on a degree and I know how to plan intentional activities to promote development😅. So, once a week, I will plan, implement, and post an enrichment activity. It really is mostly for my accountability, but it at least means a minimum of weekly pictures of my little man for your viewing pleasure 😄. Sensory bags are not really new for Leo since I used them frequently during tummy time, but they were always big ones taped to the floor. I decided to make smaller ones that he could pick up and practice fine motor skills. I was going to put a random mixture in each bag, but realized that I would be missing out on a developmentally appropriate way to introduce categorization (early math skill). So, each bag has a type of item with an increasingly dense liquid: tinsel with oil and water, buttons with gel, and 'jewels' with corn syrup. 
Results: Leo was super engaged in this activity. He spent about 2 minutes just squeezing them before  he even put them in his mouth! Then he of course loved chewing on them and I regretted my decision to not go buy duct tape to seal all of the edges. I only let him play with them for about 10 minutes (closely supervised) before I set them aside until I can tape them better. However, I think that they will be a frequently used activity once I trust their durability more. 
I have a much messier activity planned for next week (I LOVE me some messy sensory play!!) that is not as vetted as this one, so we shall see if it is as successful 🧐. #childdevelopment #infantactivities #sensorybags #sensoryplay #enrichmentactivity

If you’re like me and you have a child, who is crazily into construction sights and tools then this post is for you! .
We all know, sooner or later, that spending hundreds and hundreds on toys for our children, just because they’re going through a phase of liking them isn’t worth it at all. Shakti was all about doctors and dentists last month but now he is fascinated with nuts and bolts. .
So? What do we do? Would we NOT buy them toys they’re interested in? Of course not. But how do we save money and keep them happy? ALL AT THE SAME TIME??? Well, that’s one of the reasons I joined Instagram. Thousands of women, before me, have shared and still are sharing their creativity as parenting hacks! @play.hooray is one of my favorite pages! Claire, the lady behind all the creativity, shares with everyone some really awesome parent hacks. I am a big fan of her work. .
This particular activity is from @play.hooray . It’s very self explanatory: save the next molded pulp tray you come across. Hand out screws, nuts etc, (real and toy). And watch them go! PS: supervision required at all times. .
If you have other tricks up your sleeves just like this one, pls share it with me! .

Holy. SHIT 😳😳😳
Nearly two with number two kid is next level. Also doesn’t give a toss about the Elf On The Shelf which does not help the situation. 
Lucky he’s the cutest thing on earth or we’d be selling. 😑  #aggressorbaby #heeeeeelp

Did a sweep of the house to update Charlie's heuristic play tray. Love that his toys are our everyday household items. It's great seeing his little imagination at work. Still gotta keep bunny and his favs in there though! 😂 #childdevelopment #heuristicplay #householdtoys #imagination #babyplay

How fun is this fruit counter set?! Great for kiddos to practice patterns, counting, adding, and subtracting! Pretty much any math skill can be practiced using these hands on fruit counters... great for the classroom or at home 🥰🥰

Day 6 of one of the Axline’s 8 Principles. . .
.
Much of current play therapy practice is based upon Virginia Axline’s work
.
.
These principles emphasise the importance of a practitioner being able to use a comprehensive 'Play Therapy Tool-Kit' which will enable the therapist to follow the child's lead. .
.
As a Play Therapist do not attempt to direct the child’s actions or conversations in any manner. The child leads the way, the therapist follows. .
.
Very much different from the ‘play’ outside of the therapy elsewhere. It is led by the client however they want as long as they are safe, we are safe and the things in the room are safe. .
.
Get in touch with @jccreartiveexpression to know more about Play Therapy and how can it benefit you or your child. .
