Building Healthy Minds: The Six Experiences that Create Intelligence and Emotional Growth in Babies and Young Children
While every parent wants an intelligent, emotionally healthy, and moral child, no one has yet shown exactly how and when these qualities begin. Now Stanley Greenspan, the internationally admired child psychiatrist, identifies the six key experiences which enable children to reach their full potential as human beings.In Building Healthy Minds, parents will learn not only the precise types of games, fantasy play, and conversations with and without words that encourage this development, but also how to tailor these to their particular child. Surprising insights, such the great value of extended parent/child arguments, or the complex intellectual achievements represented by a trip to the refrigerator, will amaze and delight parents. No one but Stanley Greenspan has looked so deeply into the very earliest stages of human development, and no other book makes such vital and effective information available to every parent.
