Overview

Children don't come with instruction manuals, but sometimes it seems like everyone has an opinion on how to make your child into a mini-Einstein.

A winner of a Books for a Better Life award, this book sifts through years of developmental research to give you a clear message: learning really happens through playtime.

As the authors explain how to make the best of your time with your child, they show you how to practice their own three "R's":

REFLECT: Stop and ask if a formal, structured activity is right for your child and whether you're reducing the time that she could spend learning through play.

RESIST:Just say no to stuffing your child with information and do so knowing that the research in this book backs you up.

RE-CENTER:Reassure yourself that you made the right choice, because growing up should be full of play, not work.

More than a book about parenting, this guide is a joyful celebration of childhood and the imaginative and nurturing play that should be so much a part of it.

It is hard to resist all of those educational toys out there, but the author provides a sound argument why we should do just that and simply allow our kids play more with conventional toys and books. I read the summary of this book on ParentsDigest and just loved it's message: stop trying so hard to make your child a genius and just let him/her develop at his/her own pace!

This is a great book to review basic child development principles and to understand the parenting role and its importance to children.
