I cannot thank you enough for supplying these talks. I am a special education teacher, PreK-6th grade, in Montana, USA. I am so grateful to have instruction and insight from so many experts available to me. Thank you also for providing the links for follow-up questions and diving deeper into their areas of expertise. This summit will make a difference in the way I approach
assessment, instruction, and intervention in my classroom, as well as how I collaborate with my general education colleagues and parents. All that and I am only halfway through day 1!

Disasters can be even more frightening and confusing for children, but with a little help, they can learn how to respond. 

Emergency and disaster preparedness is not one person’s job — the entire family or household should be involved, including the kids! 
Listen to this episode where we bring in an expert, Chakradhari Rowe, a Security Architect & Tactical Instructor who has studied Protection & Counter Terrorism from ISA-Israel and is the liaison for ISA in India. Join us as we discuss what an emergency is, and what we, as parents and educators can do to bring about a culture of safety-awareness in society. And yes, learn about the one COMMON misconception we all carry in our heads- that safety training and self-protection means training in martial arts. Learn why that’s not true and what crucial things come before training in the martial arts.

Check out our latest episode on the ‘Big Talk About Tiny Humans' podcast on what personal safety awareness training for kids truly entails at: ivm.today/tinyhumans

I still remember the terrifying moment during my daughter’s toddler days when I had come out of the house instinctively to check on her only to have my heart skip several beats! I found her dangerously close to falling from a wall! I profusely thanked my motherly intuition for that savior moment! The undeniable #SahiWaliFeeling- or not - that every mom has for their child. 

We’ve known for a long time that motherhood changes us—duh, right?—but scientists are just starting to characterize the precise nature of those bodily and psychological changes.  Scientists have known for a couple of decades that women’s brains shrink during pregnancy. The running hypothesis is that ‘brain shrinking’ might actually be a sign of the brain honing its circuits for mothering. 

We might often say and mean it in a funny vein but the ‘mommy brain’  is a result of pregnancy. Women’s brains are permanently altered after childbirth. While science has confirmed the permanent changes in women’s brains, there’s an ongoing conversation on the ‘motherhood instinct.’ Experts agree that moms can be more sensitive or susceptible to particular cues, and this kicks off almost immediately after childbirth. Thanks to Huggies #SahiWaliFeeling campaign that is instilling confidence in a lot of moms to trust their instincts. Stop judging yourself. Go with the flow.
