Would you build an Ikea table without the instruction book? Probably not. Then why are we raising kids without knowing how their brain works? Isn't it nonsense?

Most of us know how to feed children in an healthy way, but what do we know about raising healthy brains? What kind of experiences are important to provide to children, how the brain learns. BRAINIOUS is a documentary that shares "neuro-knowledge" for parents and educators in order to help children thrive and reach their full potential.

If we really want children to master their lives we need to teach them how to handle their brains!
