Inhaltsangabe

What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching TV do to a child’s brain? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know. In his New York Times best seller 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 zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control. Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops - and what you can do to optimize it. You will view your children - and how to raise them - in a whole new light. You’ll learn: Where nature ends and nurture begins. Why men should do more household chores. What you do when emotions run hot affects how your baby turns out, because babies need to feel safe above all. TV is harmful for children under two. Your child’s ability to relate to others predicts her future math performance. Smart and happy are inseparable. Pursuing your child’s intellectual success at the expense of his happiness achieves neither. Praising effort is better than praising intelligence. The best predictor of academic performance is not IQ. It’s self-control. 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.

Kritikerstimmen

"Dr. Medina hits the nail on the head with Brain Rules for Baby. We are always looking for ways to make our kids smarter, better, happier. Medina gives such practical, usable advice and tips." (Nina L. Shapiro, MD, UCLA School of Medicine)
"An engaging and fun-to-read translation of the best research on child development and effective parenting. I gave Dr. Medina's book to my own son." (Ginger Maloney, Ph.D, The Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy)
"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)

Little facts loads of stories

The facts that are being presented (with all sorts of irrelevant blathering around it) aren't any news to any adult with half a brain.
Do buy if it is news to you that, in order to raise an intelligent kid, you'd better pick an intelligent spouse and eat a balanced diet!

Sympathetic yet factual - Love it!

We‘re only 8weeks pregnant but after finishing listening to John Medina‘s heart-warming and just as info-loaded audio book, we can’t wait to start parenting.
Will listen again in the last trimester :)

Empfehlenswert. Für alle (fast) Eltern.

Ich hab 3 Kinder. Kimberly (20), Dennis (13) und Josie (5 Monate).
Über die letzten 21 Jahre habe ich viel gelesen über das was man tun soll, was helfen könnte und was nichts bringt...
Mozart DVDs, mindestens 6 Monate Stillen etc.
John Medina ist anerkannter Gehirnforscher und spricht professionell selber dieses Audiobook.
Ich lese meine deutschen Audibles mit 3x Geschwindigkeit und englischen mit 2x Geschwindigkeit. Jeder mit guten englischen Kenntnissen sollte auch bei normaler Geschwindigkeit mindestens 99% des Hörbuchs verstehen.
Und wer deutsch bevorzugt, der kann zum deutschen Buch greifen.
Ein Must-listen/read für werdende/ gerade-gewordene Eltern.
