By Anonymous, The Guardian, December 9, 2019 Monday I work in schools, supporting children who are struggling including looked-after children, who are not being cared for by their birth parents.

The above time-lapse study was conducted over 10 years. The darker colors represent brain maturity (brain development). I have added...
