How children think is one of the most enduring mysteries--and difficulties--of parenthood. The marketplace is full of gadgets and tools that claim to make your child smarter, happier, or learn languages faster, all built on the premise that manufacturers know something about your child's brain that you don't. These products are easy to sell, because good information about how children's minds really work is hard to come by.
In their new book, neuroscientists Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang separate fact from fiction about the inner workings of young minds. Martialing results from new studies and classic research, Aamodt and Wang provide the most complete answers out there on this subject. It liberates readers from superstitions and speculation, such as Freud's idea that all relationships are modeled on one's mother, or that it's not safe to eat sushi while pregnant. And it will reveal new truths about everything from how to make your baby sleep, to why we love to snuggle, to how children learn, forget, play, talk, walk, and feel.
Welcome to Your Child's Brain is eye-opening and necessary, soon to become a staple for parents and children alike.

Learned a lot!
I wish I had this info when the kids were still young. There are a lot of concepts that have helped me understand young people better. A good deal of science was explained too. If you have kids you might want to read this and glean what you can. Fairly easy to understand. I have recommended this book to lots of people.
