If your child is depressed, has emotional outbursts, or has trouble delaying gratification, he/she may have lowered activity in the frontal regions of the brain that are responsible for planning, foresight, choice-making, and emotion regulation.
A great method to stimulate children's frontal brain regions is playing strategic board games, ones that require thinking ahead and evaluating consequences, such as Checkers. Specifically, novelty in games can help combat depression due to the specific brain areas that are stimulated.
Intu It works with children to stimulate the frontal regions of the brain through strategic play, games, and stress management techniques to improve mood, mindfulness, and executive functioning.
