The Toddler Brain: Nurture the Skills Today That Will Shape Your Child's Tomorrow

By Laura A Jana
What if, despite the best of intentions, we are raising our children to succeed in a world that no longer exists? The Toddler Brain helps parents recognize the connection that exists between their own parenting behaviors and their child's ability to acquire valuable twenty-first-century skills. Dr. Laura A. Jana draws on studies and stories from pediatrics, neuroscience, social science, and childcare, as well as the world of business and innovation to show parents how to equip their children with seven key skills. Dr. Jana explores the importance of play and curiosity, imagination and empathy, and strategically strengthening children's neural connections in their first five years.

"It is now clearer than ever that the path for future success is set in the earliest years of life. The Toddler Brain, Dr. Jana offers a wealth of thought-provoking and practical insights on how today's parents can help their children thrive and grow up to be happy, resilient, and creative adults." --Harvey Karp, MD, pediatrician and author of The Happiest Baby on the Block
"A strategic plan for assembling the critical toolkit of twenty-first-century skills very child will need to thrive." --Reid Hoffman, entrepreneur, Chairman & Co-founder, LindedIn
"Comfortably straddling the business world and the realm of parenting, Jana observes that the parenting paradigm must shift just as many workplaces are changing with the times. This fascinating, forward-thinking book will help parents prepare their children to reach for the stars-perhaps even those not yet discovered."?Publishers Weekly
