But in spite of this overwhelming amount of information, there is very little research-based advice for parents on how to raise their children to be well rounded and achieve their full potential, helping them learn to take on life's challenges, communicate well with others, and remain committed to learning. These are the "essential life skills" that Ellen Galinsky has spent her career pursuing, both through her own studies and through decades of talking with more than a hundred of the most outstanding researchers in child development and neuroscience. The good news is that there are simple everyday things that all parents can do to build these skills in their children for today and for the future. They don't cost money, and it's never too late to begin.Mind in the Making is a truly groundbreaking book, one that teaches parents how to give children the most important tools they will need. Already acclaimed by such thought leaders as T. Berry Brazelton, David A. Hamburg, Adele Faber, and Judy Woodruff, Mind in the Making is destined to become a classic in the literature of parenting., Unabridged., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc.,2014., computerc, data file, digital, eAudiobook hoopla, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781482962550_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, xv, 382 p. :ill. ;23 cm.
