You already have everythingÂ you need to raise a healthy,Â happy, intelligent child
Parenting today is practically a competitiveÂ sport, and marketers are all too happy to cashÂ in. Scare tactics and scientific-sounding jargonÂ make it seem like parents are in constant dangerÂ of hard-wiring their childrenâs brains for failure.
In fact, this state of parental anxiety is totallyÂ unnecessaryâand possibly bad for our children.Â Babies are born with an appetite to learn. ChildrenÂ are naturally curious about the world and eager toÂ explore it. They donât need flashcards, educationalÂ videos, or the latest iPad app to help speed theirÂ development. Attempts to get children speakingÂ and reading before theyâre developmentally readyÂ may even harm them in the long run.
In The Intuitive Parent, Vanderbilt UniversityÂ child development specialist Dr. Stephen CamarataÂ debunks the claims many of these âbrainÂ developmentâ programs make. Using accessible,Â down-to-earth language he explains how parentsÂ can intuitively support their childâs brain developmentÂ by simply paying attention. Babies andÂ children develop at their own pace; whatâs more,Â they are hardwired to signal to caregivers whenÂ theyâre ready for the next step. Restrictive toolsÂ like flashcards may derail your childâs ability toÂ learn holisticallyâand will definitely sap the joyÂ from one of the most important jobs in the world:Â being a parent.
The key is to recognize the âready to learnâÂ cues your child is giving you and respond in aÂ way that comes naturally. Routine activities, suchÂ as playing peekaboo, reading books to a toddler,Â talking, singing, feeding, and otherwise meetingÂ the everyday needs of a child, are the true magicÂ that ultimately wires a childâs brain and helps childrenÂ become an intelligent, confident, curious,Â and talented adults.
Grounded in the latest science by a nationallyÂ recognized child development expert, The IntuitiveÂ Parent arms parents and caregivers with the confidenceÂ and knowledge they need to quit worryingÂ and enjoy the time they have with their childânoÂ fancy gadgets or pricey videos necessary.
