I know we are not teaching babies here at ISM but I felt this video and website could be useful to parents. John Medina, best selling author of Brain Rules also just wrote another amazing book sheding light on all the current brain research:  Brain Rules for Babies.

Please check out his website here and this hilarious, laugh out loud, Brain Rules for Baby Video. Even though he is speaking about babies, the research around praise and other topics here are very helpful even for our elementary students and parents alike.

Enjoy! And if you are looking for some summer reading, I highly recommend both of these books. He makes understanding the brain a breeze!
