During the first six years of life the child´s brain has a potential that will never have again. This does not mean that we should try to turn children into little geniuses, because besides being impossible, a brain developed under pressure is likely to miss a great part of its essence. This book is a practical manual that summarizes the knowledge that neuroscience provides to parents and educators, so that they can help children to achieve full intellectual and emotional development.
