"Brain Rules for Baby"

 The following are the top five questions that came up as author John Medina toured the country giving lectures on childhood neuroscience: “What can my baby learn while she is still in the womb?” “What’s going to happen to my marriage after we bring our baby home?” “How do I get my kid into Harvard?” “How can I make sure my little girl is going to be happy?” “How do I raise a morally aware child?” 
 
His book Brain Rules for Baby: How to Raise a Smart and Happy Child Zero to Five  is guided by these practical questions. The answers are what Medina refers to as Brain Rules – what scientists know for sure about how the early childhood brain works. Medina understands that parents need facts, not just advice. By using proven science, Medina is able to debunk bad advice from well-meaning mother-in-laws and message boards. “The great thing about science,” he says, “is that it takes no sides—and no prisoners. Once you know which research to trust, the big picture emerges and myths fade away.”
 

Medina has a talk and signing tonight at 7:00PM at Portland State University Smith Memorial Student Union 1825 SW Broadway
Portland, OR. 97201. The event is free and open to the public.
