The origins of focus and control (which we clearly know are key 'life skills') begin before birth. The child's style of dealing with stress and controlling emotions is beginning to be developed in utero!
The networks inside the brain connect before birth and the multiple areas of the brain that operate senses, emotions, and intellect are setting up focus and control patterns for life.

I think the figure is nearer 3 million a second, it all depends what data you use to calculate it, I have evidence from my research that is nearer 3 million, but my data could very well be outdated. However it doesnt really matter the essential fact is the awesome responsibility parents have to ensure that the inputs to this growth is positive and controlled for what we are building is the child life script
