    The root of all learning comes from changes between neurons (at the synapse). Scientists call these changes neuroplasticity. Understanding the brain's adaptability can inform our everyday experiences and generate motivation and passion about learning, even in our children's most difficult subject areas. Let’s discuss the role we as parents can play in promoting challenge, failure, and appropriate feedback to ensure our children have growth-oriented mindsets.
