This is the foundation talk for all of Nathan’s other talks, where you learn about the structure of your brain and how these impact on everything you say and do. To understand how this structure comes about means re-examining your early life and the first 1000 days.
The First 1000 Days of your life will shape what kind of person you will turn into. In contrast to what your parents believed, it’s not just about your genes and it’s not about learning alphabets, numbers or colours. It’s about being in a safe, loving and interactive environment. The more love and positive interaction you experience in your first 1000 days of life, the more developed your brain will be. This will ultimately impact all of your child’s life-long outcomes (far more than secondary school ever will!). Come along and get a summary of the latest research and everything a parent, grandparent or whānau needs to know.
