Product Description

Review

"Healthy emotional development is at the core of all learning.  Parents who read "Baby Hearts" will become masters at understanding their young children's feelings and how to foster their positive relationships, self-esteem, and emotional control.  Engaging, practical, and scientifically-based, "Baby Hearts" is a terrific book for all parents."—Lise Eliot, author of What's Going On in There? How the Brain and Mind Develop in the First Five Years of Life

"This is a vivid, illuminating, and wise portrayal of emotional development in the early years.  These gifted authors highlight the importance of close relationships for the unfolding of personality, self-esteem, and understanding of others."—Ross Thompson, University of California, Davis

From the Inside Flap

Who says your baby can't "talk" about his or her feelings? In fact, babies' actions often speak louder than words! Understanding those actions-and responding appropriately to them-is the key to giving your child a head start to a healthy and happy future. Now the authors of the bestselling "Baby Minds and "Baby Signs translate the latest research on the rich inner life of babies into practical, fun activities that will foster your child's emotional skills during the most critical period-between birth and age three. This comprehensive guide will help you help your child express emotions effectively, develop empathy, form healthy friendships, and cope with specific challenges. Learn how to:
-Talk with your child about emotions in order to help him recognize and control his own
-Use face-to-face interaction, tone of voice, song, and touch to make your infant feel safe and secure
-Start a gratitude journal to help your child appreciate the good things in life
-Nurture self-esteem with "try, try again" activities and simple chores
-Create a "What are they feeling" deck of cards to help your child understand and practice emotions
-Use games and songs to help your child practice self-control
-Overcome temper tantrums, aggression, shyness, separation anxiety, and other challenges
Whether your child is as easy to raise as a sunflower, as difficult as the prickly holly bush, requires the patience of the delicate orchid, or is as active as the exuberant dandelion, "Baby Hearts helps you provide the
emotional support that may be the most important gift a parent can give.

Format: Paperback
I had been anxiously awaiting the release of this book, "Baby Hearts," as I had thoroughly enjoyed the authors' previous books, "Baby Signs," and "Baby Minds." The book captivated me from the very beginning and is full of real-life examples of how babies/toddlers display their emotions to those around them. It provides parents with information they can use to nurture their children and work towards developing emotionally healthy adults. It is written in a clear and entertaining way and focuses on the different temperaments of children and how to address issues ie. temper tantrums, aggression and shyness. It also provides details regarding the research conducted with babies around the world. I found it difficult to put down and as a mom, some of the information, ie. the chapter on shame and guilt, really made me think. Highly recommended.

Having read Baby Signs and Baby Minds, I was eager to read the newest book by Dr's Acredolo and Goodwyn and I was not disappointed. This book contains wonderful insight into the emotional development of your baby from birth to age three. As a mother, I found it fascinating to read both about the different goals AND challenges which we face today as parents. The research behind the book is sound and the suggestions on how to deal with your childs emotional growth to better help them develop into secure and happy children is immeasurably useful. This book is a true gift to any parent who wants to ensure that they have the necessary tools to help their child grow up emotionally strong and secure.

Format: Paperback
Drs. Acredolo and Goodwyn continue to provide parents with insightful, educationally-sound, and loving advice and support in their new book, Baby Hearts. Like I did when I read Baby Signs, and Baby Minds, Baby Hearts made me take a look at my own parenting style. It was reaffirming to know that what feels right intuitively actually has research to support it. Our young children are so impressionable and our interactions with them each day are so important. This is a must-read book for parents and caregivers! It is easy to read- even if it's just a few pages at a time.

I found this book to be really well written and put together. It allowed for easy reading with lots of breaks to allow for us busy mom's to pick up and read at any time. It gave me a lot of great ideas to try with my own child and her emotional well-being. I would recommend this book to anyone and plan on sharing it with all my friends! Thanks Dr. Acredolo and Dr. Goodwyn for yet another fantastic book!
