Childhood Experiences Matter

This is an interesting article in the NY Times.  It talks about childhood traumatic experiences and outcomes in later life.  If you didn’t realize the importance of your parenting and providing your children with experiences that have positive influences on their lives then maybe you will after reading the article.  It speaks to the reasons why we’re on our 52-in-52 journey: to ensure that the experiences for our children are better than our own.  From the article:

“In Paul Tough’s essential book, “How Children Succeed,” he describes what’s going on. Childhood stress can have long lasting neural effects, making it harder to exercise self-control, focus attention, delay gratification and do many of the other things that contribute to a happy life.”
