Whole-Brain Child: 12 Revolutionary Strategies to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind


Product Description

Published USA, 2011
The upstairs brain, which makes decisions and balances emotions, is under construction until the mid-twenties. And especially in young children, the right brain and its emotions tend to rule over the logic of the left brain. By applying these discoveries to everyday parenting, we can turn any outburst, argument or fear into a chance to integrate the child's brain and foster vital growth. Complete with clear explanations, age-appropriate strategies for dealing with day-to-day struggles and illustrations that will help parents explain these concepts to their child, this book shows us how to cultivate healthy emotional and intellectual development so children can lead balanced, meaningful and connected lives.
