The best way to shield developing brains from the effects of toxic stress is to avoid exposure to long-term stressful conditions. While childcare providers may not be able to prevent toxic stress, research shows that early responsive relationships with caring adults can reverse the damaging effects. Babies can learn to calm and regulate their emotions if supported. In other words, the loving care you provide to young children could make a permanent difference in their mental and physical health.

Minimizing screen time (television, video games, smart phones, computers, DVDs, etc.) can also have an adverse effect on early brain development.

by giving the child or children a safe and calm environment, less screen time, more interactions and individual time, we might even be able to help reverse toxic stress connections with in the developing brain.

Caregivers can help support early brain development by providing a positive environment, reading aloud, singing and dancing, limiting screen time, having educational toys and manipulatives, outdoor areas and making sure they are in a safe environment with other children. Limiting screen time is definitely a big one!

Providers can support early brain development by allowing the child to as independent as possible when doing their work, limiting screen time and allowing the children to do creative activities that will strengthen their brain activity and allow for further development.

Supporting early brain development can be done in many ways, such as limiting screen time to no more than 2 hours a day, being responsive and positive to the child, and engaging with the child so they can learn from example. The effects of toxic stress can actually be reversed from positive interactions with others.

Positive stress results in brief increase in heart rate and hormones, and is normal and needed for healthy brain development. But avoid toxic stress.

And no screen time for children two and younger.  No more than 1-2 hours per day for older children.

As childcare providers we can help support early brain development by providing a safe place and avoiding toxic stress. We can encourage positive stress as it is good for brain development. We can avoid screen time for children because it has an adverse effect on developing brains.

Providers can help support early brain development by surrounding children in a safe and positive environment to reduce toxic, doing activities that trigger executive functioning, and cutting out screen time at the center.

I think that providers should support the early brain development of the child, interacting more with the child face to face and not using screen means because it affects the children seriously in their development.

avoid stressful situations for the child. My school and day care center has a zero tolerance for screen time and any videos.

Providers can encourage healthy brain development by encouraging imaginative play, interacting and engaging with the children, reading to them, and being a positive support and caregiver during times of stress.
