Summary
"Marcia Tate's Preparing Children for Success in School and Life: 20 Ways to Enhance Your Child's Brain Power is an authoritative and practical guide for parents who are interested in creating a brain-compatible home environment conducive to the optimal growth and development of their children. In this collection of recommended best practices, Tate draws on what we know about how our brains behave and learn, the latest research in human growth and development, and her 30 years of being a mother to three to explain how parents can design a brain-compatible environment, put a plan into place to help children develop character and responsible behavior, and use key strategies that grow children's brain cells while working with them at home. Similar in format to Tate's other books, Preparing Children for Success in School and Life: 20 Ways to Enhance Your Child's Brain Power will define recommended practices, share research from the fields of psychology and education to demonstrate why the practices should be used, and provide numerous examples on the use of the practice in the home environment"--Provided by publisher
