In HOW TO BUILD YOUR BABY’S BRAIN: A Parent’s Guide to Using New Gene Science to Raise a Smart, Secure, and Successful Child
Dr. Gail Gross, nationally-recognized educator, psychologist, and family and child development expert, gives parents the power to realize their potential to be their child’s true gene therapist, nurturing and influencing their child’s genes and potential future through the environment they create during a child’s early development. Highlighting key periods of development in the first 100 days, and the first five years of a child’s life, Dr. Gross offers parents strategies to maximize family time and provide the best care to ensure that their child grows to be confident, secure, and independent while reducing the tendency towards negative behaviors and traits.
Dr. Gross has over 40 years of experience, as well as an Ed.D. in education and Ph.D. in psychology. She regularly contributes to national outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Time, People, Parents, and more, and has most recently been featured on The Doctors, NBC, and KHOU. She is the author of How to Build Your Baby’s Brain and The Only Way Out is Through, her beautiful memoir and personal guide to reclaiming life and joy after transitions and tragedy.

Your child’s DNA is not destiny; you are at the helm, guiding their course.
The truth is, nature and nurture are in a delicate dance—if one goes too fast, the other one falls. Science tells us that early childhood experiences have the capacity to structure and alter the brain. That means you didn’t just supply your child’s DNA—you’re still shaping it. And it’s only by wielding this power that your child will activate their full potential. You are truly a gene therapist; manipulating and guiding your child’s genetic makeup based on the experiences you create for them. Contrary to what modern parenting trends have told us, parenting is much simpler than we dared to imagine. Great parenting comes down to one mission: to be prepped and present for the windows of your child’s development so that you can take full advantage of them and help your child become a smart, successful, self-sufficient adult. It doesn’t require formal training or a fancy degree—all it takes is getting involved. Once parents learn how to flip the right gene “switches,” they can expand the limits of their child’s potential and lay the emotional and intellectual groundwork that allows them to seize opportunities for success fearlessly, naturally, and enthusiastically.
With a PhD. in education and a second in psychology, and forty years of experience as an educator, Dr. Gross combines an understanding of childhood development with practical and realistic tools to teach parents how to best take advantage of their child’s developmental windows. How to Build Your Baby’s Brain translates the results from scientific studies about expanding consciousness and performance into day-to-day interaction between parents and children.
