Turbo-Charge Your Baby’s Brain Development

Industry: Book Publishing

Join us as early development specialist and Parenting for Peace author Marcy Axness, PhD, shares the latest scientific secrets for how you can easily chart a course

United States (PRUnderground) April 19th, 2012

Marcy Axness, PhD, author of the new book Parenting for Peace: Raising the Next Generation of Peacemakers (published by Sentient Publications, distributed by National Book Network) will appear as a guest blogger for six major parenting blogs April 23-27:

Eco Child’s Play
Elevating Child Care

Positive Parenting Skills
Creating a Family

Dr. Axness has some great practical insights for parents (and “pre-parents”). She distills the latest neuroscience research into user-friendly take-aways to help demystify the attachment neurobiology process in which face-to-face engagement with parents serves as mind-to-mind training for baby. You can read an excerpt from her book Parenting for Peace that gives you the whole scoop – and this is what Marcy will be blogging and answering your questions about.

She’ll reveal:

  • the amazing research proving you and your baby are a single biological unit when you interact — and how to use that knowledge to boost both your brains’ power!
  • toys and activities that build brain power (and ones that drain brains, too – like Baby Einstein and other screen-based entertainment)
  • what the heck epigenetics is and how it can work for you! Insights to use right now…
  • how pregnancy is “Nature’s Head Start Program”; knowing what lessons take place can help you start your baby off right… and understand if baby’s early weeks aren’t going so smoothly

An early development specialist and parent counselor, Marcy is also a popular international speaker on attachment, culture, and child and parent development. Featured in several documentary films as an expert in adoption, prenatal development, and Waldorf education, Marcy’s combination of life experience, cultural acumen, and scholarly credibility uniquely equip her to provide compelling and entertaining guidance through the thicket of choices parents today face in raising children.

Marcy wrote Parenting for Peace as both invitation and challenge: if we really want to change the world, let’s raise a generation “built for peace”… from the very beginning. Her book is a user-friendly scientific roadmap for how to do exactly that – detailing a unique seven-step, seven-principle matrix for hardwiring our babies and children with the brain circuitry for such essential peacemaker capacities as self-regulation, empathy, intelligence, trust and imagination, while in the process, bringing more joy into family life!
