    The brain prepares for each new stage by growing new neural connections. This expresses as a steady stream of great expectations on the part of the child. Something wonderful is supposed to happen and it will provided the model environment challenges and nurtures the new unfolding possibility. If the model environment fails to acknowledge, value, challenge and nurture that new possibility - it won’t develop. This follows the basic reciprocal dynamic between brain and environment. The higher up the developmental ladder the harder it is for the child to find living models of the innate expectations aching to unfold. Instead of self-mastery we offer only GI-Joe and rock stares.
