Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten: Raise IQ by up to 30 points and turn on your child's smart genes Paperback – March 11, 2008
Frequently Bought Together
From Publishers Weekly
Perlmutter, a neurologist and physician, helps parents utilize that "brief window of opportunity in a child's life when parents can help create a brain that is built for optimal performance." Some of the book's advice ought to be common knowledge—establish a healthy diet, avoid toxins and limit television and video games—but Perlmutter's detailed guidelines take the guesswork out of smart parenting. Even more helpful is the inclusion of several simple, age-appropriate games that parents can play with their small children to help them develop the skills they will need, without resorting to dull test-and-drills (which, he argues, stifle creativity). Perlmutter offers clear solutions to real-life childhood issues that can affect the brain (such as food allergies, ear infections and the overdiagnosed ADHD) without preaching or talking down to parents who may be overwhelmed by the conflicting advice of doctors, psychiatrists and the media. The book's intuitive structure, helpful graphs and lists, and a comprehensive appendix supports this information in a hands-on, accessible form. (Sept.)

Dr Perlmutter provides solid advice on nutrition, environment, games, TV, computers, video games, and more.
Some of my favorites:
* Start using a computer at age 3
* Formal music training can begin at age 4
* Video games and TV are not evil! (As long as they are controlled by the parent!)
* Focus on the creative and not repetitive, robotic memorization.
* Stay away from things such as DEET and other environmental toxins
* Go organic
* Daily multivitamin and supplements
It is slightly tacky that Perlmutter *occasionally* mentions his own brand of supplements. However, I am not sure that any competing formulations exist. Nonetheless, I will forgive him this slight negative. No biggie...
I highly recommend "Raise a Smarter Child by Kindergarten". Every parent should read this NOW so that they can take complete advantage of this five year window of opportunity. Your child will thank you!
