About this title:

Synopsis: What makes us intelligent, resourceful, creative, and flexible? Our minds are shaped not only by our genes, but also by the knowledge we gain when we are young. Newborn babies are often eager to learn but, by the time they start school five years later, many have already lost their enthusiasm for learning. So what can we do to hone our children's skills? How do we improve their motivation, concentration, and intelligence? Can we accelerate learning? And what happens when your child has learning difficulties? Dr. Tessa Livingstone answers all of these difficult questions and more in this useful and informative study. She shows how we can equip our children with the skills that will help them to excel at learning, thinking, and remembering. Drawing on cutting-edge research in neurology, psychology, genetics, and sociology, Dr. Livingstone arms parents with the best learning strategies for all personality types and shows how television, video games, and computers can be used to enhance intelligence.

From the Back Cover: What makes children intelligent, resourceful, creative and flexible? Their minds are the powerhouse for everything they think and do and are shaped crucially by the knowledge they gain when they are very young.

At the very beginning, newborn babies are ready and eager to learn, but by the time children start school, five years later, many will have lost their all-embracing excitement for learning. So what can you do to hone your children's skills? How can you improve their motivation, concentration and intelligence? Child of Our Time: Brain Child is an essential guide for parents and will help you achieve what everyone wants–the very best for your child. This book will help you discover:

How to keep your child motivated to learn from babyhood onwards How your learning style influences your child How to improve your child’s memory and concentration How to help your child learn to read How to prepare your child for school How to help your child learn, whether maths or art, through the early school years What to do so your child gains a love of learning that will last a lifetime

Using cutting-edge research in neurology, psychology, genetics and sociology. together with the personal experiences of the families featured on BBC1’s CHILD OF OUR TIME series, Dr Tessa Livingstone, herself a mother of two, guides parents through the crucial period in a young child’s life that will shape their intelligence and their future.
