Sam Wang, PhD and Sandra Aamodt, PhD

How do children think? This is one of the major questions faced by every parent. Today’s parents try all manner of strategies to raise kids that are smart, happy, and confident, but this book digs into the inner workings of a child’s brain at different stages of development to sort through which things are mere marketing mumbo jumbo and what really works. Welcome to Your Child’s Brain offers applicable advice (some of which may surprise you) and dispels commonly held myths in favor of reliable scientific evidence. The authors tackle pertinent child-rearing topics from educational videos to ADHD and give you science-based answers about your kids from infancy through the teen years.
