Dr. David Walsh is expert at translating headline-making, scientific findings about the developing brain into practical suggestions for parenting today. In his previous bestseller, Why Do They Act That Way?, Walsh showed how to manage the difficult teenage years by understanding how the adolescent brain develops. Now, he again uses solid research to give parents specific, practical advice for helping kids from birth through the teenage years to maximize their potential.
Smart Parenting, Smarter Kids equips parents with practical information about exercise, nutrition, play, sleep, emotional intelligence, connection - all knowledge that readers can use in the most important job in the world: raising kids. Some discoveries in neuroscience confirm age-old parental wisdom while other discoveries will prompt some immediate changes. Backed by science, with real-life applications, Dr. Walsh’s new book provides a personal plan that explains how (and why) to parent with the brain in mind.
