Hi,
Mother's Day is right here with us! Let us all free up some time to give our mothers the respect they rightfully deserve as they devote their precious time to raise and parent their families in a selfless and righteous manner. Let us all celebrate Mother's Day with all devotion, love and affection. A tight hug or a warm embrace would do wonders to lift our spirits and make us proud in the process. Happy Mother's Day!

Thought for today:
"Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love." - Stevie Wonder

Best Regards,
Andrew Loh

Bright from the Start: The Simple, Science-Backed Way to Nurture Your Child's Developing Mind from Birth to Age 3
By Jill Stamm, Ph.D

Should you really read to your baby? Can teaching a baby sign language boost IQ? Should you pipe classical music into the nursery? Dr. Stamm translates the latest neuroscience findings into clear explanations and practical suggestions, demonstrating the importance of the simple ways you interact with your child every day. It isn't the right “edutainment” that nurtures an infant's brain.

Dr. Jill Stamm is the co-founder of New Directions Institute for Infant Brain Development and is an associate clinical professor at Arizona State University in Psychology in Education. She is a nationally-known presenter on the subject of early brain development and has spoken before thousands of parents, caregivers, teachers, and policymakers.

 

How Children Succeed: Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character
By Paul Tough

The story we usually tell about childhood and success is the one about intelligence: success comes to those who score highest on tests, from preschool admissions to SATs. But in How Children Succeed, Paul Tough argues that the qualities that matter most have more to do with character: skills like perseverance, curiosity, conscientiousness, optimism, and self-control.

How Children Succeed introduces us to a new generation of researchers and educators who, for the first time, are using the tools of science to peel back the mysteries of character. Through their stories - and the stories of the children they are trying to help - Tough traces the links between childhood stress and life success. He uncovers the surprising ways in which parents do - and do not - prepare their children for adulthood.

The Most Troubling Myths About Gifted Kids - Debunked
Take Part May 07, 2013
