The early development of mobility in newborns is a vital part of their future ability to learn and grow to full potential. We may be wasting our children's most important years by preventing them from physically exploring their world and maximizing their mobility development when they are young--the time that it is easiest for them to do so.
In How To Teach Your Baby To Be Physically Superb, Glenn Doman--founder of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential--along with Douglas Doman and Bruce Hagy guide you in maximizing your child's physical capabilities. They clearly explain each stage of mobility and show how to create an environment that will help your baby more easily achieve that stage. Full-color charts, photographs, illustrations, and detailed yet easy-to-follow instructions are included to help you in creating an effective home program.
This inspiring book shows how the team of mother, father, and baby can explore and discover together the joys of human mobility. From learning the simple but vital stage of crawling to the beginnings of the sophisticated skills of the gymnast, this athletic team is a baby's most important one.

This book should be required reading for parents! It gives you simple things you can do with your baby to give him a big head start with physical and intellectual achievements. One thing is to put your baby on his tummy as much as possible. Another thing is to employ tactile stimulation. Using these principles, my 14 month old son is very advanced for his age. Get this book - it will blow you away!
