Publisher's Summary

The president of the Families and Work Institute creates an audiobook of groundbreaking advice based on the latest research on child development.

Ellen Galinsky has spent her entire career studying early childhood development, first at Vassar College, then for 25 years at the Bank Street College of Education, and for the past 20 years as the founder and now president of the Families and Work Institute. What she has found is that there is an enormous gap between what researchers have discovered and what parents have been told about those discoveries. Mind in the Making bridges this gap, bringing the work of more than 100 scientists into a form that parents everywhere can use. Galinsky has divided this information into the seven skills she believes all children should learn, showing parents not only what children are capable of, but specifically how to develop those capabilities in their children.

This book has assisted me so much in learning about myself. I now understand what has held me back from growing to my full potential. It has helped in my renewal. I have an 18 month old daughter and I feel really confident that sharing all of what I’ve learned here will aid her in her journey of life.
