In the Wired Magazinecolumn The Frontal Cortex, Jonah Lehrer writes How Preschool Changes the Brain. In response Dr. Housman at Beginnings said, "This article and articles like this are very important. The information is powerful in terms of how important healthy emotional development is - even more than IQ, according to several studies. I don't happen to believe that one is very good without the other - both are important! This article is accurate in its research and analysis by Heckman, an economist and Nobel Laureate. This information started coming out several years ago supporting the importance for how emotional awareness is the engine behind control and how necessary it is for our kids to develop and become more emotionally smart - more emotionally aware."
