Site Information. It's a good gateway book to variety of topics in relation t I've been getting more into the brain science of parenting and the reasons why many children are the way they are.

I found it interesting, the way the author tied in all of the information about the brain and how it works and develops. So this book is so much more than just a guide to parenting. Sure, it goes into things like attention, nutrition, play, exercise, sleep and much, much more , but it also ties these things into how they relate to the brain.
It really fascinated me. The author tells us the emphasis of this book is "science made practical", and I really do think that he did a wonderful job of making all of the available information about brain development and function etc relate-able. And it doesn't come off like a text book, it's written in a way where it keeps your attention and is easy to read. Each chapter has a list of do's and don'ts, a parent tool kit, and finishes with asking the reader what they want to continue doing and what they want to change.
Given all of the information and tools available, this book really does offer a "personal plan to parent with the brain in mind. So his attitude doesn't come off as though he knows better about raising children then we do. In fact, he tells us : "This book brings you up to date with brain science discoveries to aid you in the most important job of your life : raising your children. But, of course, parenting is an art, not a science. Science informs the art, but there is no book anywhere that can dictate the correct answer or strategy for the millions of decisions we make from the moment we embark on our parenting journey to the day we help our kids load up the U-Haul to strike out on their own" page of my manuscript copy This book is an excellent resource for any parent with children of any age, as it breaks down into the various age and development groups.
He isn't lying when he tells us that "whether you're pregnant with your first child or trying to figure out why adolescents act the way they do, you'll find important information and practical advice. And I know, as my child ages and his brain continues to develop, I'll continue to return to this book as a resource.

Also, the title is different. I wonder how many of the things I didn't like have been corrected in the final book. There are plenty of lessons to be learned from this book, though I felt I won a copy of this through First Reads! There are plenty of lessons to be learned from this book, though I felt the writing style was too simplistic. There are many mock conversations that take place, and they seem totally made up or at least dumbed down. You're meant to answer all the questions "true", which seems to defeat the purpose of having it set up like a quiz to begin with.
I didn't like that aspect of the book either. I also didn't like the author suggesting that if you just explain to teenagers that their feelings of angst or sadness are a result of brain development, then they'll somehow be okay. It was interesting to understand adolescent brain changes from an adult perspective, but to suggest that you could improve the outlook of a teenager by giving them a science lesson is ridiculous.
Those nit-picky things aside, the information in the book is valuable. It feels more academic whereas this book felt ever-so-slightly condescending to me. I wouldn't write this book off altogether, but I guess I had higher hopes for it. Nov 11, Brenda rated it really liked it.

This was a great book in parenting. What I really liked is that Walsh took all of the current brain research, explained it in terms for people like me and then presented good parenting ideas based on that research. While some of what he said was familiar and reaffirmed what I had found to be true in practice, I learne After several stops and starts with this book, I finally made it all the way through.
While some of what he said was familiar and reaffirmed what I had found to be true in practice, I learned from reading this book. His points on nutrition and memory were good reminders. He also addressed sleep and exercise and the importance of both. He spent some time addressing adolescents, and I found what he had to say there really fit what we are experiencing, it made me want to read his book Why Do They Act That Way?
All in all, I felt it was a worthwhile read. I especially liked the end of the book where Walsh noted "old" parenting advice and talked about how most of it fit with current brain research. Jul 26, Marya rated it liked it Shelves: adult-nonfiction. First of all, the book's title is Smart Parenting, Smarter Kids. I'm not sure why Goodreads can't read that in Amazon when I imported it. This book is what Mind in the Making should have been: an easy to read guide that transforms nicely summarized brain studies into specific suggestions for parenting with a dollop of personal parenting narrative tossed in.
