    Parenting advice isn't hard to find. There are thousands of books on the subject, as well as a multitude of websites. Much has also been written on the science of child development. What's been lacking, however, are sources of reliable advice that bring together the scientific research and its real-world applications.

    Where does Scientific Secrets for Raising Kids Who Thrive rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Amoung the best


    What other book might you compare Scientific Secrets for Raising Kids Who Thrive to and why?

    How Childern Succeed; Grit, Curiosity and the Hidden power of character- This is the book I actually started with but got bored with the long winded stories and lack of practical tips


    Have you listened to any of Professor Peter M. Vishton’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Lecture 3 over developing food tastes. He explains that spitting out food when trying it for the first time is was and evolutionary advantageous behavior in hunter gather times and didn't imply toddlers didn't like a new food. Sure enough, we watched our toddler over the next few days and reintroduced foods we thought she didn't like and were thrilled to see her developing tastes for them.


    Any additional comments?

    These lectures are the perfect example of a great audio book. I get bored by more long winded books where the chapters aren't so neatly divided into shorter chunks. I can listen to a full lecture in 2 work commutes. He explains background theory, experimental evidence, and evolutionary roles in developing behaviors. This was just such an enjoyable listen.
    It prompted me to buy other great courses books, which weren't as good.
