A cutting-edge handbook for parents, from a pioneer in infant brain development, that bridges the gap between the most current neuroscience and practical parenting techniques

Dr. Jill Stamm?s daughter was born almost four months premature, and doctors insisted she would never walk or talk. Now, thirty-two years later, her daughter is living proof that nearly every baby?s brain has the potential to adapt and flourish given the right attention. A leading authority in infant brain development, she makes new, remarkable findings accessible to everyone in Bright from the Start. What babies need is as simple as A, B, C:
? ATTENTION: including how to increase a child?s attention span, and how to balance stimulation with down time
? BONDING: illustrating the importance of developing emotional attachment between a child and a consistent caregiver?and why this is key to cognitive development
? COMMUNICATION: with breakthrough advice for tapping the correlation between verbal engagement with parents and higher IQ rates among children

She also discusses what kind of childcare environment to select, why learning toys don?t teach as much as you think, why reading to a baby is critical, and how you can help your child learn how to pay attention. By working with Dr. Stamm?s ABCs in Bright from the Start, all parents can help to build a radiant future for their precious little ones.

Dr. Jill Stamm's Bright from the Start gives parents the most leading-edge approach to maximizing their children's intellectual potential - a powerful advantage in today's competitive world. These are critically important tools that will enhance your child's mind and solidify the parent-child bond. -- David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, Board-Certified Neurologist, Author, Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten

In the tradition of the WHAT TO EXPECT books, BRIGHT FROM THE START gives parents of newborns and toddlers essential information on healthy development.
