Publisher's Summary

Parenting is hard, but it doesn't have to be.  

This guide to The Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind is a quick rundown of how to become the parent you want to be and help your child become a happy, well-adjusted adult.  

In this audiobook, you will find many examples of challenging parenting moments. You will also find some information on the 12 strategies to help you nurture your child's developing mind.  

You will learn things like: 

  • The differences between the right brain and left brain, and how to help them work together.  
  • How to help your child manage when their downstairs (illogical) brain holds their upstairs (logical) brain hostage.  
  • How to help your child learn to consider the feelings of others.  
  • How to help your child form bonds with others while still maintaining a sense of self.  
  • And so much more.  

Being a parent is difficult. There are so many moments that challenge us and make us crazy. The important thing to remember is that you are your child's first line of defense from the world. You must help them develop the skills to not just survive, but become happy, well-adjusted adults who thrive. The way you parent will have an effect on all future generations.

Great Info

This book is the best book I have got on how to develop my LO's mind. It is easy to understand. I found the best part of the book to be the charts for each age group which tells you, the parent, how you can help your child reach their milestones.

Brilliant

You don't need to incorporate all of the games she suggests, but the author dispels some of the myths that many people believe and helps you be more informed so that your child has the opportunity to excel in the most beneficial cognitive environment possible. A book that I recommend to others.

Well Placed Summary

However, this resulted in me creating a bunch of bookmarks I will need to sort through in order to get the most out of the book. Even with that being the case, there is lots of really great information here that is backed up by research.

Very good i love learning so much from this book!

I especially love all the specific ideas for what to do with my baby/toddler to help build attachment, communication, bond and, ultimately, to support my son's development. It translates neuroscience into practical advice for parents.

Interesting Info

This research is amazing. Using screens to babysit your babies and toddlers is directly affecting their brain development and iq. Brilliant work. I give these books to every new parent!

Very insightful, easy to listen and realistic. I appreciate that it talks about all stages of childhood but remains applicable to listen no matter the age of your child.

Well summarized.

This is an enlightening, practical, and refreshing of knowledge book. I wish all parents would listen this book to be able to manage their children's behaviors as they grow through the phases of life. This would create such well-rounded, dynamic and emotionally intelligent children for generations to come.
