By Sheila Heyman
About what: "Summary of reports from the front line" - this is what one of the readers called this book.

Posted by Tracy Hogg, Newborn Care Specialist, Parenting Consultant, and Melinda Blau, Journalist

“Education without templates. Learn to hear your child "
By Stephen Camarata, Professor of Psychiatry, Father of Seven
About what: The book runs through the idea that there are no universal methods of upbringing, because there are no identical children. The main thing a parent should be guided by is intuition, and the secret of success is common sense and a positive outlook on life. Kamarata is very interesting and, most importantly, simply talks about the structure of the brain and criticizes almost all methods of early development (knowledge of letters is only knowledge of letters, not understanding the meaning of what was read; classical music is just classical music, not spiritual development). The author also talks about how to get rid of your expectations and overstated requirements for the child.
