"Parent Nation: Unlocking Every Child's Potential, Fulfilling Society's Promise"
"A manifesto, and a handbook, for what we as individuals and as a society are morally called to do for all kids to thrive. Required reading for anyone who has ever loved a child." -- Angela Duckworth, author of "Grit"
Our guest on ST Medical Monday is Dr. Dana Suskind, founder and co-director of the TMW Center for Early Learning + Public Health at the University of Chicago, where she also directs the Pediatric Cochlear Implant Program and is a professor of surgery and pediatrics. She joins us to talk about her new book, "Parent Nation: Unlocking Every Child's Potential, Fulfilling Society's Promise." This important volume, praised as "an incisive and persuasive call to action" by Publishers Weekly, is built upon -- and is effectively an extension of -- Dr. Suskind's bestselling earlier book, "Thirty Million Words: Building a Child's Brain."
