Whenunder stress or fear EMPATHY regulates, LOGIC infuriates.”

Did you know that under stress your prefrontal cortex (executive center of the brain)shuts down and all of your decision-making and cognitive thinking goes bye-bye? Remember this the next time you attempt to use logic or advice with an upset child (or partner/sister/friend).

In any heated interaction, you can choose to give water or gas;  grow love or fuel hate. You have the power to take deep breaths, talk less, and listen with your heart. Thank you TEACH through Love for your daily, gentle reminders on love and regulation like the ones quoted above. http://www.teach-through-love.com/
