This video was created in response to a school based project, teaching children about the impact of stress on the brain.

We wanted to make something fun and simple that parents would be able to watch with their children to help them begin to understand the link between their brain and their feelings and behaviours. A lot of parents have been in touch to say that it helped them to understand their brain better too!
We hope that the video starts a conversation in your family!
