I hate it!”) or let you know in less direct ways (crankiness, clinginess, temper tantrums).

Forget flash cards. One of the most powerful things you can do with your baby now to boost his brain power later is to talk to him-often, nicely, and in a variety of circumstances, say researchers Betty Hart, Ph.D., and Todd Risley, Ph.D., authors of Meaningful Differences in the Everyday Experience of Young American Children.

A child genetically predisposed to being the next Mozart will never play a note if he’s not stimulated in ways that will bring that predisposition to the fore.
Oh, the pressure for parents. “My biggest concern is that parents are going to read about this research, run out and buy flash cards, get in their babies’ faces every 90 seconds to stimulate them, and miss out on the joys of raising a child,” says Edward Zigler. Ph.D., a Yale psychology professor and Continue reading “How kids get smart: the surprising news – Part 2” »
You’ve been hearing a lot lately about how critical it is to stimulate a child’s brain. That’s because a variety of different studies have proved that the way a child is brought up actually shapes the way her brain grows — and how intelligent she will be.
Genetics plays a role in a child’s brain growth, of course. But the ability that parents have to influence that growth is little short of awesome. Nothing you do or don’t do will change how your child’s heart chambers develop, or how many eggs her ovaries hold, or how her kidneys function.
