About this title

Synopsis:

THE LATEST STUDIES PROVE SOONER IS SMARTER

  • How much is a child capable of learning before the age of six?
  • What happens to a child's brain during the preschool years when the body is growing so rapidly?
  • How can working parents make sure their children are getting enough mental stimulation?
  • Should parents help a youngster learn to read before he or she starts the first grade?
  • How can parents safely use computers and the Internet as early learning tools?
  • Is a child's intelligence level actually fixed for life by inherited genes?
You'll find the answers to these and hundreds of other vital questions in this revised and updated edition of this classic parenting guide. How to Raise a Brighter Child incorporates groundbreaking scientific findings on brain development to help you boost your child's potential from birth. Discover specific early learning techniques to aid your child's development of his or her mind -- in his or her own personal style and at the appropriate speed. These are not formal lessons. Most are fascinating games. And they work!

About the Author:

The late Joan Beck wrote the award-winning "You and Your Child" column for The Chicago Tribune for many years, in which she pioneered coverage of new research on brain development, the battle against birth defects, and the struggles of parents to balance family and careers -- all the while, raising two children herself. Later, she became the first woman member of the Tribune's editorial board and her twice-weekly op-ed columns were syndicated in hundreds of newspapers nationwide. A member of the Chicago Journalism Hall of Fame, Ms. Beck was also the author of four books: Best Beginnings, Effective Parenting, Is My Baby All Right? with Dr. Virginia Apgar, and How to Raise a Brighter Child, which has been translated into eight languages and published widely around the world.
