Dr. Dana Suskind examines the neuroscience of early childhood development, finding the modern world’s departure from community parenting detrimental to kids, parents and society. Her solution is more support for parents during those key early years. With a combination of research and anecdotal data, Dr. Suskind empowers parents to seek help instead of shouldering the burden alone.
