WHY DO KIDS NEED CARE?
Trauma comes in the form of physical, emotional or chemical stress. This can occur in the birthing process, as a baby is pulled out of the womb, when a child learns to crawl or walk, from childhood illness and associated antibiotics or other medications, or simply from how they perceive the stressors in their environment. When children receive care, their nervous systems are typically quick to respond, as they haven't spent years trying to adapt to this stress. How would your life be different if you hadn't carried traumatic events, accidents, emotional or environmental stress with you into adulthood, until you were in enough pain to deal with it? Optimizing a child's nervous system allows their bodies to focus on learning, growing and staying healthy. When their bodies aren't trying to manage stress, all other systems function better and with greater ease, allowing them to live in their full potential!
