Silence Is Golden

Silence has been found to stimulate brain growth: In 2013, a study into brain structure and function (Imke Kirste regenerative biologist) found that a minimum of two hours of silence could result in the creation of new brain cells in the area of our brains linked to learning and recall.

So why not introduce periods of silence to your children in small doses and ask them how they feel afterwards.
