THE BRAIN RESTS AT NIGHT
While calm reigns over the body outwardly, the brain is a whole different ball game: “Sleep plays a catalytic role. In fact, night-time enables the brain to deal with emotions that have not been digested during the day,” explains Stéphanie Couturier. Between concerns about school and questions that gnaw away at our children at each key stage of their development, taming their emotions is by no means a piece of cake.
Fortunately for us, night-time allows a huge inner cleansing process to be carried out. In the course of their education, children will always find an unparalleled ally in sleep when it comes to storing new knowledge: “Sleep enables the brain to sort, store and memorize the information that has been taken in during the day: the memory is stimulated.”
