What drives motivation and what role does motivation play in children's development and growth? How does adversity and stress impact the brain? And what role does joy play?
Our parent guest today is Allyson Mackey PhD, a mom of two and a neuroscientist who is an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Pennsylvania where she heads the Changing Brian Lab. In this week's episode, we explore the changing brain, focusing on the the importance of motivation, modeling effort, experiencing joy, and getting enough sleep.
