firstname.lastname@example.org– It is the insecurities that are placed on everyone not just children and social fears which create doubt and anxiety, if you eliminate/reduce these the mind will remove itself from fight,flight or freeze mode freeing up it’s ability to process information better. Science basis intelligence on the capacity to retain information however it forgets the ability to process this information. When suffering from anxiety whatever the reason it will always limit the ability to function properly, like riding a motor bike wherever you are looking will be the direction you tend to go even if you it’s not necessarily where you want to end up. It’s about what takes up our focus and what is distracting us. Our laws and social opinion often prevent us from speaking openly, honestly and without fear of ridicule only to create a more anxious society and one vulnerable to dictatorship.
The fear from knowing a violent incident is like the boogie man is real. It is obvious to me as a parent and especially as having been a child that fears are real. These fears increase lack of feeling safe and protected.
I grew up going to army public schools, where minorities were present in larger numbers than non-military schools and there was a high tolerance for differences among groups. Also, violence seems to be lower on military bases. Including children from this environment might serve as a good control for this research
