My mom sent me this link today to a Huffington Post article about raising a brilliant baby. Since that's the title, I was initially a little turned off because, let's face it, most stuff like that is a bunch of poppycock. That's right, I said poppycock. Anyway, skip the annoying title and check out the book description, or skip that site altogether and just go directly to John Medina's website on Brain Rules. He's a developmental molecular biologist who has written two books based on a lot of legitimate research. The first is Brain Rules and the second is Brain Rules for Baby. I think they sound fascinating, but I love reading about various studies. Unfortunately, my library doesn't have Brain Rules for Baby, but they do have his first book so I'm going to start there.
Oh, and there's a fun 20 question quiz on his site to test your parental braininess if you're bored. I missed three so I only scored an 85%. Boooooo!!!
