Step 2. Read how our nervous system often interferes with learning.
A part of our nervous system is always deciding whether we’re safe or not. If our nervous system decides, “no,” then it sounds the alarm—and we go straight into protection mode, where we can now only respond with a fight, flight, or freeze reaction.
Step 3. Read why kids go into protection mode when learning.
The nervous system’s risk assessment is always made without ever consulting the rationale, thinking part of our brain. So, in terms of true danger, it turns out that our nervous system is wrong, like almost all the time.
For example, if a child just hears it’s time to do (fill in the subject), that may trigger memories of prior frustration, which is why the nervous system now sounds the alarm. Kids will also go into protection mode if a challenge is not within reach (the brain is sure it can’t do what is being asked), or if someone has corrected them, or is testing what they know. Parents, too, can go into protection mode when they think their child is not listening, or not trying, or not processing whatever they’re presenting.
Step 4. Read how Brain Highways products keep everyone in connection mode.
Play is our natural valve for turning off stress. But most importantly, when we’re playful and having fun, we’re in connection mode. Once there, our always-on-alert nervous system can now relax.
So, each of our products include original, multisensory activities that encourage movement, creativity, and lots of ways to be playful. That’s why kids love to engage in these activities—and why parents also enjoy facilitating them.
