Covering important areas such as memory, motivation, thinking biases and parental attitudes, this book makes complicated research simple, accessible and practical.

From large- to small-scale studies, from the quirky to the iconic, this book breaks down key research to provide parents with the need-to-know facts.

Essentially, it is a one-stop shop that offers guidance on how to parent even better. A Parent’s Guide to The Science of Learning answers the sort of questions that every parent wants to know but doesn’t know where to find the answers.

This includes the small, everyday questions through to the big, life-changing ones.

Some of the questions answered in this book include: How much sleep does your child need? Should I actually help them with their homework? Why does my child forget what they have just learnt? How much screen time is too much? What can I do to help them do better at school? Is it really that important that we all eat meals together? How can I help my child learn to better manage their emotions? How can I encourage them to be a better independent learner?A hugely accessible resource, this unique book will provide parents with the knowledge they need to best support their children’s learning and development.
