Wouldn’t it be great if your child came with an owner’s manual? A how-to book on how to raise your child? And if your child came with such a manual, wouldn’t it be helpful to have someone walk you through it, making that owner’s manual come alive?
Michael Gurian and Tim Wright serve as your guides through what they believe is the owner’s manual for your child: Your child’s brain. While the brain doesn’t tell the whole story, it does offer a treasure trove of insights into your son or daughter. Michael and Tim each have over 30 years of experience using brain science research, best-practices, and their own experiences as dads in helping parents read, understand, and implement the gift of your child’s brain, the built-in how-to manual that will help you enjoy the wonder of parenting.

Excellent evidence based podcast. Every parent should listen to this.
As a new mom of a boy this podcast is a goldmine of information about how to raise the next generation of boys - how boys process emotions, how mothers and fathers parent differently and how each style is important to child development, and how to manage the new challenges posed by technology. Their advice is grounded in the latest neuroscience too, which is sooo helpful. Absolutely love it!
Not a postcast sharing personnal thoughts of experience parents. This one is based on science and facts. No sensationalism but shares good insights on human behaviors.
