” The definitive guide to children’s mental, physical, and emotional health—and a trusted reference parents will refer to over and over again. “
What I find appealing about the book is the no nonsense approach which isn’t urging parents to sit their children in front of episodes of Baby Einstein or to drill them on flash cards. Berman encourages parent-child interaction, and her number one suggestion is to spend more time with your child. According to the press release the book focuses on language acquisition, nutrition and healthy eating, play, and other crucial steps in the early development of a child.
Most of us would agree that one on one time with a child is so important. And, with busy lives and 2 working parents in many families finding the time is often a challenge. Reading the comments on one blog it’s apparent that some parents might find her suggestions difficult to achieve. Raising children is a balancing act for most parents, it’s helpful to hear professionals talk about successful ways to give your child a head start and at the same time it could be guilt-inducing.
I haven’t read the book yet, but it’s on my to-read list. Healthy, happy, well-balanced children with a head start on life is something we all want for our little ones.
