Reviews for How To Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge
Great Book - Great results!
I think this book and Glenn Doman's work is incredible. I not only got to help raise a baby on this info but got to see kids at his institute that have been raised using his methods. I expected them to be "geeky" and socially inept. Totally the opposite. They were truly "kids" in every way but also extremely mature and able to express and communicate with other kids and adults. His whole philosophy is to develop the brain. It just gives the child more options. I am sorry the lady in the review above had so much guilt issues. I agree, being natural and having fun while you use bits and these techniques works best. I never saw any instructors suggesting anything else! The boy we raised with this info was "all boy" but was able to communicate well with both peers and adults at an early age and developed in his areas of interest very nicely. by Kelly Davis
be careful about this book
I bought few books by Glenn Doman in order to give my baby a head-start.
First of all I felt terribly guilty that I did not start teaching her soon enough (from the book "a minute should not be wasted"). Secondly I was nervously looking for the right moment to give her some lessons.
It was just dangerous for my sanity and harmful to my confidence as a mother. Glenn Doman's books make me feel like I am a bad parent because my baby is not like the ones he describes.
As Steve Biddulph says in "Raising babies"
The first three years of life are dense with learning and growth. Yet it is done best when a parent is simply natural, warm and playful; attempts to make babyhood 'educational' with flashcards, Japanese lessons and DVD learning programmes only make us and our babies neurotic and stressed"
I reaserch the topic of toddlers education and I would advise Montessori method - educating them through their senses. Some good books about shaping the parsonality are by Steve Biddulph (Raising Boys, Raising Girls, How love works is also worth reading;-) and also Why Love matters by Sue Gerhardt.
