    Summary: 
    An authoritative and practical guide for parents who are interested in creating a brain-compatible home environment conducive to the optimal growth and development of their children. In this collection of recommended best practices, Marcia Tate draws on what we know about how our brains behave and learn, the latest research in human growth and development, and her years of being a mother to three to explain how parents can design a brain-compatible environment, put a plan into place to help children develop character and responsible behavior, and use key strategies that grow children's brain cells while working with them at home.--Excerpted from publisher.
