The Science
Behind Play.

It's true! Research shows that play helps to stir up neuron activity in the front end of the brain—that’s the part that plays a critical role in regulating emotions, making plans and solving problems.
 
Play builds social brains that know how to interact with others in positive ways. That’s why “Playing to Learn” is at the forefront of our six-element approach helping children (even the strong-willed ones!) build their social and emotional skills.
 

Cognitive Skills

Children with social and emotional skills demonstrate an improved ability to suppress or modify a behavioral response and have better attention control, memory and planning skills, as well as cognitive flexibility.

Emotional Skills

Emotional Skills can include identifying and expressing emotions, emotional and behavioral regulation, as well as the ability to empathize with and understand another person’s emotional state and point of view.

Interpersonal Skills

Social and emotional skills can help children understand social cues and engage in conflict resolution and social problem-solving. These skills allow children to develop positive relationships with others through listening/communication, cooperation,and learning to be a good friend.

Character

SEL helps children develop their skills, values, and habits required to understand, care about, and act upon their core ethical values and to perform to their highest potential in achievement.

Mindset

Through social emotional learning, children discover their attitudes and beliefs about themselves, others, and their own circumstances that impact their interpretation of and response to events and interactions throughout the day.

What is Neurodiversity?

Neurodiversity refers to variations in the human brain regarding sociability, learning, attention, mood and other mental functions. Some common forms of neurodivergence include autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, OCD, and more.

How Gen:M Can Help

Gen:M products make thinking, talking and learning about emotions fun for your child! With practice, children as young as age two and three begin to recognize the four different mood-groups we all feel in the average day.

Our online courses teach parents and guardians to start responding instead of reacting to big emotions and challenging behavior, leading to more connection, learning, and love.
