"Brain Rules for Baby: How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child" by John Medina

Why is leaving your baby alone during the first part of pregnancy so important? Why is face time with Mom so crucial to maximizing your child's potential and screen time so damaging? What can you do to give your child the best chance at being smart and happy? Scientists know.

Following the success of his long-running New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, John Medina, renowned developmental molecular biologist at the University of Washington School of Medicine and director of the Brain Center for Applied Learning Research at Seattle Pacific University, brings us BRAIN RULES FOR BABY: How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child from Zero to Five.
The book combines all the latest science on how best to develop your baby's brain. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control.

Bridging the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice, each chapter describes brain rules — what scientists know for sure about how the early childhood brain works. The book presents the science behind the rules while offering practical ways for parents to apply the research. Medina, a dedicated father himself, shares his passion for brain science and for raising children, making the book easily accessible with humor, fascinating stories, and enlightening case studies throughout. Each chapter ends with a summary of key points.
