Your child’s core nature is thrilling to observe and appreciate as it unfolds before your eyes. It’s wonderful to feel confident as a parent, to tailor parenting techniques to fit the unique needs of your child’s nature.”
—From the Introduction

From Michael Gurian, the best-selling author of The Minds of Boys and The Wonder of Girls, comes the next-step book that shows how any parent can tune into a child’s unique core personality, hard wiring, temperament, and genetic predisposition in order to help that child flourish and thrive.

Based on the most recent brain research, Nurture the Nature features the Ten Tips for Nurturing the Nature of Your Baby, self-tests, checklists, and many other tools for you to help your kids get exactly the kind of support they need, from infants to adolescents.

While offering positive ideas for nurturing your child, Gurian also shows how to avoid the stress, pressures, and excessive competition of what he identifies as social trends parenting. Most parents know instinctively that their child is unique and has special potential, weaknesses, and strengths. No child is a blank slate. Gurian calls on parents to turn away from one-size-fits-all approaches and instead support the individual core nature of a child with effective and customized loving care.

Nurture the Nature offers a rare combination of solid research and compelling case history that will help you develop the consistency and confidence you need for parenting your children in a way that respects who they really are.
