Book Description

What makes children intelligent, resourceful, creative and flexible? Their minds are the powerhouse for everything they think and do and are shaped crucially by the knowledge they gain when they are very young. At the very beginning, newborn babies are ready and eager to learn, but by the time children start school, five years later, many will have lost their all-embracing excitement for learning. So what can you do to hone your children's skills?How can you improve their motivation, concentration and intelligence? "Child of Our Time: Brain Child" is an essential guide for parents and will help you achieve what everyone wants - the very best for your child.This book will help you discover: how to keep your child motivated to learn from babyhood onwards; how your learning style influences your child; how to improve your child's memory and concentration; how to help your child learn to read; how to prepare your child for school; how to help your child learn, whether maths or art, through the early school years; and what to do so your child gains a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Using cutting-edge research in neurology, psychology, genetics and sociology together with the personal experiences of the families featured on BBC1's "Child of Our Time" series, Dr Tessa Livingstone, herself a mother of two, guides parents through the crucial period in a young child's life that will shape their intelligence and their future.

Author Biography - Tessa Livingstone

Tessa Livingstone has always been interested in children. Armed with a Psychology and Physiology degree from Oxford University she worked for a while with children in Europe and the Middle East before coming back to London for a PhD in Brain Sciences. She funded this partly by freelance journalism which she enjoyed so much she decided to go full time and got a job at the BBC. Since then she has researched, directed and written award-winning documentaries and, in 1998, initiated the project that was to make her name. Child of Our Time was conceived as a longitudinal study of childhood. Tessa added her considerable knowledge of child psychology to make the series famous for its eclectic mix of human stories and science.
