Everything Your Baby Would Ask...If Only He or She Could Talk Summary

Everything Your Baby Would Ask...If Only He or She Could Talk by Annette Karmiloff-Smith, PhD

Using a series of questions babies might ask if only they could talk, and providing answers that only an expert would know, the text takes readers on a fascinating journey through the world of an infant. Babies have extraordinary skills and capabilities that largely go unnoticed because we adults don't know what to look for; they also have anxieties and fears that we can soothe. Many parents worry about whether they are meeting all their baby's needs and desires correctly. After all, how many of us can remember what it was like to be a toddler, let alone a baby? In order to help parents understand their newborn children, this enterprising work looks at the world through the eyes of babies at every stage of his or her growth. Using the unique format of having a series of questions asked by a baby, the first two chapters examine the experiences of babies in uteri, what it is like being born and how they make the transition to the outside world. Each of the following chapters investigates a different aspect of development such as locomotion and speech. Everything your Baby would Ask...uncovers and communicates the joys, preoccupations, challenges, and worries that make up a baby's world, enabling us to be the best possible parents to our children. - Ground-breaking concept: looks at life from a baby's point of view - Helps parents understand and care for their baby with more confidence - Packed with fascinating scientific facts about babies' development - Authoritative text written by pioneering researchers in child development - Packed with fascinating studies for parents to perform themselves - Unique insights into the secret life inside the uterus
