"Dr. Medina hits the nail on the head with 'Brain Rules for Baby.' We are always looking for ways to make our kids smarter, better, happier. Medina gives such practical, usable advice and tips."
- Nina L. Shapiro, MD, UCLA School of Medicine

"An engaging and fun-to-read translation of the best research on child development and effective parenting. I gave Dr. Medina's book to my own son."
- Ginger Maloney, Ph.D, The Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy

"John Medina uses a very readable and refreshing style to present parenting strategies in the context of factual scientific information."
- Jadene Wong, M.D., Stanford University School of Medicine

"If you've no room for another brain-development title, weed an old one to make room for this. Covering such topics as pregnancy, relationships, and "moral" babies, the book will educate even the most learned parents. Medina's humorous, conversational style make this an absolute please to read."
- Library Journal

"We recommend this book to all of our new-parent groups. With a gift for storytelling, Dr. Medina marries the science with practical advice that helps make sense of it all. Sleep-deprived parents still find time to read Brain Rules for Baby and love it."

What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? What does watching TV do to a child’s brain? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know.

In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control.

Brain Rules for Baby bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops – and what you can do to optimize it.

You will view your children—and how to raise them—in a whole new light. You’ll learn:

Where nature ends and nurture begins
Why men should do more household chores
What you do when emotions run hot affects how
your baby turns out, because babies need to feel safe
above all
TV is harmful for children under 2
Your child’s ability to relate to others predicts her
future math performance
Smart and happy are inseparable. Pursuing your child’s
intellectual success at the expense of his happiness
achieves neither
Praising effort is better than praising intelligence
The best predictor of academic performance is not
IQ. It’s self-control
What you do right now—before pregnancy, during pregnancy, and through the first five years—will affect your children for the rest of their lives. Brain Rules for Baby is an indispensable guide.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very interesting 7. Juni 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book brings some interesting information. The informal style is not very appealing to me, and as a person who highly regards attachment parenting, I though his take on "cry it out methods" was too kind. The author says there are no proven negative effects to such methods, but I believe it is a matter of the burden of proof (that the proponents of such techniques need to prove they do not harm in the long run, which I highly doubt and which remains open to question). Other than that, it is a good read.

Von CarolineK
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Every new parent should read this book! It is written in an entertaining way and will guide you through the brain development of your child in a very down to earth way. Everything Medina writes is backed by science and I truly believe that thinking about the things he writes about and then do your best will lead to a happier childhood, which is a great start in life.

4.0 von 5 Sternen How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Baby 6. Juli 2014
Von Trevor Habermeyer - Veröffentlicht auf
As a young father who has largely avoided the litany of parenting books on the market, I didn't know what to expect from John Medina's "Brain Rules for Baby." Purchased on a whim at the recommendation of a friend, the book sat on my shelf, unread, for several months until I realized that my somewhat laissez-faire style of parenting probably wasn't in the best interests of my children - my 15-month-old son and a baby daughter in the oven. Devouring its contents in about a week, I am very glad I had this epiphany sooner than later.

Despite being a "developmental molecular biologist" by trade, Medina is a refreshingly savvy writer, opting to avoid much of the jargon that would make the book impenetrable for the untrained layman like me. The book is divided into five clear, topical sections:

- Pregnancy (how to help your baby develop while in utero)
- Relationship (how to avoid the relationship pitfalls many couples experience post-partum)
- Smart Baby (how to optimize your child's brain development and intelligence)
- Happy Baby (how to raise a happy, well-balanced child)
- Moral Baby (how to help your child develop and nurture their moral compass)

Medina does his best to base his recommendations on robust scientific research, which is a plus. As he states early in the introduction, "To gain my trust, research must pass my `grump factor.' To make it into this book, studies must first have been published in the refereed literature and then successfully replicated . . . Where I make an exception for cutting-edge research, reliable but not yet fully vetted by the passage of time, I will note it" (pp. 3). You can tell that he was very careful about choosing what material to include, later citing his distaste for research based on, "shoddy designs, biased agendas, lack of controls, non-randomized cohorts, too-few sample sizes, too few experiments - and lots of loud, even angry, opinions" (pp. 143). Medina knows his statistics, which makes it easier for me to trust that the recommendations he presents in the text have a solid foundation.

Perhaps inevitably, it's hard to read a book like this and not feel somewhat inadequate and/or guilty - especially if you already have kids. I couldn't help but think of how much TV I've already let my little boy watch, how much more I should be talking with him to bolster his language acquisition, etc. Fortunately, Medina readily admits that the ideal is not going to be the reality when it comes to parenting: "A family based on every suggestion in this book is fantasy" (pp. 254). Being a parent has its own learning curve, and we're never going to perfectly implement best practices. But if reading this book only makes me a _slightly_ better parent, it will still have been worth it.

So why not five stars? As much as I appreciate Medina's "grump factor" in filtering out unreliable data, there are two important topics I felt should have received much more coverage, considering their relative importance in a child's development: nutrition and music. Aside from nutritional imperatives for pregnant mothers, Medina has surprisingly little to say about nutrition beyond the breastfeeding stage. Perhaps he thought nutrition, one of the most controversial subjects out there, was intuitive?

As for music, Medina has a bit more to say, but I have mixed feelings about how he presented it. I counted only a couple instances where Medina had something positive to say about the effect of music on a child's development, and in both cases music is cited as helping children better perceive others' emotions, increasing their "ability to establish and maintain friendships" (pp. 273). That's it for the positive; otherwise, Medina is fairly snarky in his dismissal of pro-music research, such as the idea that playing classical music will have a positive effect on a child's development. While I respect his good intentions to clear up erroneous myths, I fear that parents might walk away from this book believing that music is non-essential at best, irrelevant at worst - a tragic conclusion either way, in my opinion.

Admittedly, I have a bias: I was raised by a mother who has been an advocate for music education and has proclaimed the positive effects of music on the brain for as long as I can remember (she even wrote a book on it: "Good Music Brighter Children"). Music has always been a major part of my life, and I intend to make it a priority with my own children. Considering Medina's admittance early on that, "Most of the data we have [regarding baby brain development is] associative, not causal," (pp. 7) it seems rather irresponsible for him to dismiss much of the positive research regarding music and brain development so flippantly. While music is certainly not a cure-all, I have good reason to believe, both from anecdotal experience and from the positive research I have read, that the effect of music on the brain goes far beyond simply helping children better perceive others' emotions.

Despite my qualms, I would still highly recommend this book for prospective parents. What Medina left out does not invalidate what he included. There are some really excellent, practical ideas that all parents could benefit from (the book even closes with a "Practical Tips" chapter that breaks down much of the research into applicable chunks). While I am not an expert on "essential" parenting books, I am inclined to keep Medina's work within arm's length as I work on raising my young children.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Down-to-earth and comprehensive advice for all parents (and parents-to-be) of young children 7. Mai 2014
Von Yau - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I appreciate the down-to-earth, scientific, and reliable advice on what works and what doesn't. There are many theories out there, and worse yet many products, claiming to help babies be happier and smarter, all capitalizing on parents' love and fears. But this book helps not only to debunk those myths, but also to discover issues that were clouded by them. We are bombarded with advertisements on what to buy buy buy, and we check consumer reports to see what products are best. While we know at the back of our mind that things like disciplining and marital relationships are important, we don't spend enough time worrying about these things. This book emphasizes the importance of those missed issues, and gets us back to genuine parenting. The biggest myth that it debunks is that the new baby will simply bring cuteness and happiness to the family. While this is very true, the other side of the picture is overlooked. It's a one-way relationship: the baby takes, I give. If parents have a fairy-tale perception of parenthood, it will lead to trouble. We need to be prepared for a more realistic view of both the great joys and great difficulties of parenting.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Least helpful early developmental book that I've read. 3. Juli 2014
Von Jenjolene - Veröffentlicht auf
I purchased this book based on the excellent reviews. Unfortunately I found it to be a snazzy and overly lengthy book with little depth or things parents can actively do to assist in their child's development. There are many better early development books available. I found "Superbaby" and "Bright From The Start" to be great developmental books focusing on ages 0-3. "NurtureShock" is also a very informative read.

The useful content provided in "Brain Rules for Baby" could be easily conveyed in only about 15% of the length. As a busy working parent who is very interested in my child's development, this was definitely not a useful book for me. I found the "Tools of the Mind" classroom section of the book to be very intriguing, but unfortunately discovered in my own search that this preschool classroom design is extremely uncommon (i.e. there is only one classroom in my entire state and you must be low-income to qualify for it). I am searching for practical and applicable child development information, not enticing descriptions about rare and unobtainable developmental programs.

Consider this as you think about buying the book: the author describes his 6-month old son pointing to his octopus mobile and clearly saying "Oct-o-pus." Really? In this, is Medina telling parents that 6-month old babies are supposed to be correctly communicating polysyllabic words to us about items? And if so, are we to feel that we are failing as parents if our 6-month old children mostly smile, sleep, and still spit up a lot? Very disappointing.
