The coolest--and easiest--book for new parents (Parents magazine)

You could read dozens of books on brain development, parenting styles, and positive discipline. You could spend hours searching online for baby/toddler/preschooler sleep, feeding kids, screen time, and "my kid is hitting me."

Or you could flip open Zero to Five: 70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science.

Friendly and practical, Zero to Five draws on tried-and-true research from experts, covering an impressive range of the topics most important to parents today.

Zero to Five draws on scientific research from a wide range of experts, including Diana Baumrind (parenting styles), Dimitri Christakis (screen time), Adele Diamond (neuroscience and executive function), Carol Dweck (growth mindset), Alison Gopnik (child psychology), John Gottman (marriage and conflict resolution), Megan McClelland (executive function), Patricia Kuhl (language acquisition), Ellyn Satter (feeding children), Dan Siegel (emotions), Paul Torrance (creative thinking), Grover Whitehurst (literacy and reading comprehension), and more.

Then Cutchlow makes it all readable, for that 2-minute break you've got during your sleep-deprived day. Zero to Five is the book she wished she had as a new mom.
