A Child's Brain: The Need for Nurture
Robert Sylwester, author of more than 20 books on cognitive science, has written this latest book to help parents and educators understand childrene(tm)s cognitive development and provide suggestions on how to nurture children to their full potential. A companion to The Adolescent Brain, this rich resource:
- Examines the neurobiology of childhood, explaining the body/brain systems that develop during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood
- Explores factors that can enhance or delay development, such as nutrition, family life, relationships, illness, intelligence, technology, creativity, and the arts
- Provides practical suggestions to help adults promote healthy development and successful learning in the children they encounter
- Includes a glossary of neurobiological terms
A Childe(tm)s Brain helps parents and educators understand the biological, emotional, and neurological changes that occur during childhood so they can support childrene(tm)s learning, socialization, and growth.
