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 child turns out TV is harmful for children under 2 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.
