It turns out interacting with your kid is the most essential thing you can do for your child

Little loving moments of emotional connection one after another...after another… collectively add up to positive brain development in your child. Not the kind where they can do their ABCs and 123s. That doesn’t lead to a happy and fulfilling life. The kind of positive brain development where you raise your child to be happy inside, choosing only relationships and friendships that fulfill them; choosing only a career path that makes them happy inside and where they can bring their own unique gifts into the world and contribute to the greater good of humanity.

Prodigi Kids exists to support parents and anyone who helps to raise a child how to create loving moments of emotional connection over time and especially, in the most challenging and difficult of times with your child. We’ll guide you on how to turn the most hair pulling, stressful moments into teachable, loving ones which will result in less stress and more moments for you and your child. Time and time again.

Check out what the leading neuroscientists from Harvard have to say about how loving moments of emotional connection builds your child’s brain.

Back and forth interactions have the MOST influence on your child’s brain development

Science has shown that the relationships with the important people in a baby’s life literally shape and form the architecture of the infant’s brain.

Deceptively simple, moment-to-moment interactions with responsive caregivers

build the brain,

creating or strenthening it one [neuron] connection at a time.” - Harvard University1

According to the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University, child-adult relationships that are responsive and attentive- with lots of back and forth interactions- build a strong foundation in a child’s brain for all future learning and development. This is called "serve and return," and it takes two to play! 2

Starting from birth, children develop brain connections through their everyday experiences. They’re built through positive interactions with their parents and caregivers and by using their senses to interact with the world. A young child’s daily experiences determine which brain connections develop and which will last for a lifetime. The amount and quality of care, stimulation and interaction they receive in their early years makes all the difference.3

If a baby's squeal of delight at a puppy is met with a smile and hug, if her excitement at seeing a plane overhead is mirrored, [neuron] circuits [in the brain] for these emotions are reinforced. The brain uses the same pathways to generate an emotion as to respond to one. So if an emotion is reciprocated, the electrical and chemical signals that produced it are reinforced. But if emotions are repeatedly met with indifference or a clashing response -- Baby is proud of building a skyscraper out of Mom's best pots, and Mom is repeatedly annoyed -- those circuits become confused and fail to strengthen. The key here is "repeatedly": one dismissive [uggh] will not scar a child for life. It's the pattern that counts, and it can be very powerful: in one of Stern's studies, a baby whose mother never matched her level of excitement became extremely passive, unable to feel excitement or joy.4

No App or Toy Can Replace A True Emotional Connection Between A Parent And Child

There is NO credible scientific data to support the claim that specialized videos or particular music recordings have a measureable

impact on developing brain architecture

in the first 2 to 3 years of life.5

Beyond recent research that has argued against such claims, evidence from decades of scientific investigation of experience induced changes in brain development makes it highly unlikely that the potential benefits of such media would even come close to matching (much less exceeding) the more important influences of attentive, nurturing, and growth promoting interactions with invested adults.

Although a varied array of experiences clearly stimulates learning in the preschool years and beyond, promotional statements about the superior brain-building impacts of expensive "educational" toys and videos for infants and toddlers have no scientific support.6

How Your Adi Plate Creates More Loving Moments of Connection with Your Child

  • You finally have a product can you TRUST stays in place + your child can’t figure out how to lift it off. The Adi plate’s superior suction technology brings you more peaceful and loving moments and removes the stressful ones. 
  • Share with your child about penguins and sea life. Show them the packaging and read the fun facts about penguins. Ask them to find the hidden whale and to find the other adorable sea creatures. Where’s the crab? What is it saying? Psst - check out our Instagram highlights for more fun packaging secrets.
  • Have fun with Shapes, Colors, Textures. Babies are naturally drawn to characters and faces. With Adi’s cute penguin design, create fun back/forth interactions and ask your child: What shape are Adi’s eyes? What shape is the suction? Where do you see a fish?
  • Adi’s fish handle lid is the perfect learning experience for your toddler. Show them how to grasp the fish and then lift off the lid. Watch their eyes light up as they master doing it themselves. Over and over again...Ask them- do you know that penguins don’t have teeth like we do. Instead they swallow their fish whole..which is why we put a fish in Adi’s belly (aka the lid).
  • Adi grows with your baby as they become a curious toddler. Guide your child about making healthy, balanced food choices and ask them to place their choice of food into each of Adi’s spacious eating compartments. Don’t want the peas to touch the pasta? Want to separate the yellow corn from the red strawberries? We got that covered too.
  • Adi’s curved edges are ergonomically engineered to be the perfect support for your toddler to help when using utensils. Watch your child use their spoon to scoop their food along the edge of the eating compartment- gaining confidence with every bite.
  • Engage your senses. Taste and smell a variety of foods. Engage in mealtime fun with your toddler in a way you enjoy. The possibilities are endless.

We hope this article has given you an understanding of just how impactful loving moments with your child can be. It is our greatest wish that you can take these products into your home to create more peace and love in your life and in the hearts and minds of your little ones.

A loving moment lasts a lifetime.
