The Brains Love Play Manifesto

Children are individuals, no matter how young. 

We all deserve respect, compassion, and understanding.

I believe in “time in" rather than “time out."

I believe in connection and collaboration rather than correction and compliance.

I believe in modeling behavior; children will do as we do much more than as we say.

I believe in stress responses and protection rather than manipulation and aggression.

I believe in the power of relationships: we heal in the same way as we are often hurt.

I believe all emotions have a purpose.

I believe we all have the capacity to heal and the wisdom to know how to do so.

I believe that no two brains work the same, and that is a beautiful thing.
