Quatrième de couverture

"What kind of person do I want my child to be?"

There are hundreds of books that give parents advice on everything from weaning to toilet training, from discipline to nutrition. But in spite of this overwhelming amount of information, there is very little research-based advice for parents on how to raise their children to be well rounded and achieve their full potential, helping them learn to take on life's challenges, communicate well with others, and remain committed to learning. These are the "essential life skills" that Ellen Galinsky has spent her career pursuing, through her own studies and through decades of talking with more than a hundred of the most outstanding researchers in child development and neuroscience. The good news is that there are simple everyday things that all parents can do to build these skills in their children for today and for the future. They don't cost money, and it's never too late to begin.

In Mind in the Making, Ellen Galinsky has grouped this research into seven critical areas that children need most: (1) focus and self control; (2) perspective taking; (3) communicating; (4) making connections; (5) critical thinking; (6) taking on challenges; and (7) self-directed, engaged learning. For each of these skills, Galinsky shows parents what the studies have proven, and she provides numerous concrete things that parents can do—starting today—to strengthen these skills in their children. These aren't the kinds of skills that children just pick up; these skills have to be fostered. They are the skills that give children the ability to focus on their goals so that they can learn more easily and communicate what they've learned. These are the skills that prepare children for the pressures of modern life, skills that they will draw on now and for years to come.

Mind in the Making is a truly groundbreaking book, one that teaches parents how to give children the most important tools they will need. Already acclaimed by such thought leaders as T. Berry Brazelton, M.D., David A. Hamburg, M.D., Adele Faber, and Judy Woodruff, Mind in the Making is destined to become a classic in the literature of parenting.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 GREAT RESOURCE 6 septembre 2010
Par Benjamin C. Brackett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I don't normally go in for this type of book, I'm not big on self-help stuff, but I read a couple of good reviews on an educational website which made it sound interesting so I bought it. I'm glad I did.

There's very little here that is really new, I suspect, I think good parents have been trying to do these things for years. BUT, this book serves as a great one-stop shop for good parenting practices and, more importantly, explains why the practices are effective using real world examples and academic research. Generally speaking, I don't have much patience for being told "what" without the "why", that's not a problem with this book.

This is a great little book and a quick read, I've already found myself referring back to it for specific ideas when working with my kids. I encourage you to read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Best Parenting Book Since Emotional Intelligence 22 avril 2010
Par Debbie Stier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have read a ton of books on parenting, and Mind in the Making is one of the smartest parenting books I have ever read. She takes all of this information and studies and synthesizes into these 7 steps that are really easy to understand, and can be useful with children of any age -- not just young children. My kids are teenagers and I found the information incredibly helpful and I saw results -- especially the chapter about "focus." This book really changed the way I parent.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 everyone should read this 12 mai 2010

Anyone who cares about children and the future should read this book. Obviously, parents are those who will most benefit from the simple and effective suggestions for developing in their children the seven skills the author talks about. But I think this is also a must-read for educators, grandparents like me, etc. Full of excellent research, great ideas, delightful anecdotes. Not a reference book to sit on the shelf - this one should be kept handy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent for parents and educators 4 mai 2010
Par Joshua D. Coleman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I have long been an admirer of Ellen Galinsky's work. As president and co-founder of the Families and Work Institute, Ellen and her colleagues have produced some of the most interesting and important findings on the relationship between work and family functioning that we have. I often cite her research in my interviews and she has become one of the most important go-to people in the field. So I was not surprised by how much I liked her new book, Mind in the Making: The Seven Essential Skills Every Child Needs. Mind in the Making summarizes the best of what we know about how children develop the capacity for thinking, learning, developing good judgement, and succeeding in life. Unlike most parenting books, Mind in the Making backs up each one of its assertions with research on child development, neurology, and parenting. It is written in a warm, engaging style that reads more like a conversation with the reader than a dry treatise on child development. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Mind in the Making provides the reader with multiple ways to help a child develop the seven essential life skills that she describes. Highly recommended!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Would have preferred a shorter, denser read 15 juillet 2010
Par Wink - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was excited about the concept of the book, but not so enamored of the execution. I find the writing style to be too fluffy for my own personal taste. I find myself skimming through most of the book, and that is NOT the way I read books. There are parts of the book that I found to be interesting, but as a whole the book was not engaging enough to compel me to read the whole thing. I think the information could have been effectively communicated in a book half the length.
