Really Dumb



Bonding is when two people become close and share a strong emotional connection. For example, if you have a best friend that you have known for a long time, you have formed a bond with them. This bond can be seen in family relationships too, like when siblings are very close. Bonding is important because it helps us feel connected to someone and can give us a sense of belonging. Statistics show that people who have strong bonds with friends and family have lower stress levels and are generally healthier than those who do not. An analogy would be to think of a bond like a rope that connects two people together. The rope is strong, but it can be stretched and still remain connected. Fun Fact: Science has found that when two people bond, their brain waves actually start to sync up in a process called “brain coupling”!
