It's pretty magical.
When you hear a story often, your brain begins to believe it. Those beliefs affect your brainwaves. And brainwaves- intense, moderate or relaxed- affect your ability to think clearly and choose intelligent behaviors.
Makes sense, right?
Next, imagine that you're a kid. Or the parent of a kid.
Imagine that all the stories with characters that look like you or your kid are about other people leading you, bossing you about or rescuing you- because "you" are always in trouble.
How would those stories affect your brainwaves?
Now, imagine a story that has Your Strong, Smiling Face in it.
Are you riding a dragon?
Cooking a delicious cake?
Fighting a zombie carrot?
Winning the Parenting Game? :-)
THAT STORY changes the way you see yourself. How you feel about You and what You can do.
Stories affect the way we see ourselves. Stories tell our children who they are and what they can do. And stories can change the way we raise our children. Stories affect our brainwaves.
When we look our children in the
eye...our eyes affect their brainwaves.
Without saying a word, we've just changed their life.
The question is: DID WE CHANGE IT FOR BETTER OR WORSE?
