Summary
An updated and expanded edition of this groundbreaking book from the bestselling author of Brain Rules What's the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching television do to a child's brain? What's the best way to handle temper tantrums? In his international bestseller Brain Rules, Dr John Medina showed us how our brains really work — and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from ages zero to five. In this updated edition — which includes a new chapter on sleep — Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practise. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child's brain develops and offers practical tips for any parent. You'll learn what is the best predictor of academic performance (and it's not IQ!), why it's better to praise effort than intelligence, and what to say to your child when emotions run hot. What you do right now — before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and through the first five years — will affect your children for the rest of their lives. Brain Rules for Baby is an indispensable guide for anyone raising a child. PRAISE FOR JOHN MEDINA 'If you've no room for another brain-development title, weed an old one to make room for this. Covering such topics as pregnancy, relationships, and "moral" babies, the book will educate even the most learned parents. Medina's humorous, conversational style make this an absolute please to read.' Library Journal
