The Toddler Brain:
Nurture the Skills Today that Will Shape Your Child’s Tomorrow
It’s estimated that 65% of children today will end up in jobs that have yet to be invented. How do we set them up for success in an ever-changing world? The Toddler Brain offers a playbook for purposeful parenting in today’s complex world and lays out a strategic plan for cultivating the 21st century skills needed to succeed during the foundational first five years of life.
"By compellingly presenting the case for cultivating key life skills - or “QI Skills” - early in life, Dr. Jana has captured the essence of the important shift in how we, as parents and collective communities, can best prepare our children for success and happiness in a rapidly evolving world."
-- Martin Scaglione, President & CEO, Hope Street Group; Former President & COO, ACT Workforce Division
"Comfortably straddling the business world and the realm of parenting, Jana observes that the parenting paradigm must shift just as many workplaces are changing with the times. This fascinating, forward-thinking book will help parents prepare their children to reach for the stars--perhaps even those not yet discovered."
