BAM: Body Mind and Child Radio (www.bodymindandchild.com), a program aimed at shattering [tag]parenting myths[/tag] and bringing parents the best, integrated, scientifically supported advice on the development of a child’s mind and body. The program aims to address the severe imbalance in parenting practices caused by the “commercialization of parenting” and the emphasis on intellectual development that excludes the critical role of the mind/ body connection in early childhood. Created by leading [tag]early childhood[/tag] experts, the program challenges the popular genre of parenting notions that has given rise to commercial products like Baby Einstein, Brainy Baby and lapware, all of which claim to accelerate a child’s mental development in the face of science that suggests otherwise. Each week the program tackles a salient parenting issue, comparing the conventional wisdom to the latest scientific insights on the subject. Initial topics include: “Should You Try to Boost Your Child’s Brain Power?,” “Is your Child Advanced or Slow?,” and “Giving Your Child the Very Best Head Start.”
BAM’s programming is developed in collaboration with an advisory board of leading early childhood experts, including pediatricians, researchers, educators, psychologists, neurophysiologists, occupational therapists, and professors, all of whom are on top of the latest scientific findings and peer-reviewed research. Each segment of BAM gives parents easy, quick and reliable access to the foremost experts on [tag]parenting[/tag] subjects.
