Parenting Pointers: Avoid Summer Tantrums and Balance Your Kid's Brain

Summer can be a challenge for parents - it's a new routine, and sometimes kids don't transition well. Behaviors may escalate as they spend more time with family and don't have the structure of a school routine. I have some information to share on behalf of Brain Balance and Dr. Melillo, who sent me the book Reconnected Kids, a well-written book that is scientifically-based but doesn't go over parents' heads to help them connect with their kids and work on behavioral issues.

Brain Balance is a drug-free, holistic approach to addressing the challenges of behavioral, social, or learning disabilities. At some point, most of us have learned about the left and right halves of our brain—but did you know that the root cause of most learning, behavioral, and social difficulties is an imbalance between them? Left hemisphere dominant children are very detail oriented and logical, while right hemisphere dominant kids tend to be more emotional. It's because of this imbalance that programs that combine sensory motor stimulation, academic stimulation, and nutrition can correct brain imbalance and ultimately improve achievement. The activities are great for children without difficulties, too! 
Not sure whether your child has a right- or left-brain weakness? Check out this simple online assessment to gain some preliminary insight into your child's functional strengths and weaknesses. 
Brain Balance Achievement Centers are located all over the USA, and you can find one near you

Brain Balance is a unique program that combines physical and sensory exercises with customized academic skill training and healthy nutrition to help address your child’s specific developmental needs.
Dr. Melillo is a clinician, professor, brain researcher and author of several bestsellers, including Reconnected Kids and Autism — The Scientific Truth About Preventing, Diagnosing and Treating Autism Spectrum Disorders, and The Disconnected Kids Nutrition Plan.
