[LISTEN] Nikki Bush chats about the value of the left & right brain in childhood

In the parenting feature, creative parenting expert Nikki Bush chats about the value of the left and right brain in childhood.

Bush says that we often talk about our kids and say that we either have a very left-brained child because they are analytical, or we have such a right-brained child because they’re into fantasy.

We’re actually all born whole-brained but we are predisposed more to one side than the other side.

Bush says that the most effective thing is to have our children journey on a path of wholeness to experience their entire brain and body.

We often talk about a human being or being a human doing says Bush and adds that the human being part comes from our right brain, and the human doing part comes from our left brain.

Did you know that the right brain develops first and the right brain is developed by age 3 or 4, and the left brain takes about 7 years to kick in.

Bush says that we’re actually a human being, before we are a human doing.
