SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Yearsby Jenn Berman
The first three years of life are the most important for nurturing a child's full potential: that's when they start forming attachments, developing a sense of self, and learning to trust. During this time, there are critical windows of opportunity that parents can take advantage of-if they know how. In a dozen succinct yet information-packed chapters, award-winning columnist and professional therapist Dr. Jenn Berman gives parents the knowledge they need. Her enlightening sidebars, bulleted lists, and concrete, easy-to-use strategies will help parents raise happy, healthy babies…who grow to be flourishing toddlers and successful adults.
The popular author of The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy, Confident Kids focuses now on the first critical years in a baby's life. Berman's direct and caring approach includes advice from parenting experts and insights gained from her own experience as a therapist and mother. Twelve key areas are covered, ranging from The Importance of Play to Creating Security and Predictability, and well-organized chapters are laid out with easy-reference suggestions, tips, guides, and breakout boxes where experts weigh in on topics: Too Many Screens in the Lives of Too Many Children, for instance, features a real-life examination of the methods two sets of parents use to cope with their toddlers at a restaurant, and the ramifications. Berman doesn't shy away from hot-button issues like exposure to TV and spanking, the latter allowing her to share 10 reasons why you shouldn't, including "Experiencing pain does not teach children to develop a conscience." It's not about raising an "überbaby," Berman notes, but about aspiring to be a super parent who raises an empathetic, resilient, and emotionally intelligent child. Her comprehensive, accessible book will arm parents with a valuable tool that will help them do just that.
