Transcription for Episode 1: An Introduction to The Growing Up Brainy Podcast
Welcome to Growing Up Brainy, your portal into what’s happening inside your baby’s brain. We interview the experts, demystify the science and help you nurture your child towards a bright, open future.
Hi, I’m Amy Husted, startup addict. Boy, mom of two, and chief commercial officer here at smallTalk. Essentially, that means I juggle all the balls required to get a product on the market and not just any product, but one that people love. Well, I did major in psychology in college, I am far from a scientist. It was my role here at smallTalk that truly introduced me to the wide world of brain development, specifically the brain development happening during baby’s first year.
What I found was an interesting web of amazing things going on in those little noggins. And I found myself constantly saying, “I wish I knew that when my kids were babies.” Now, understanding the various things going on in your little one’s brain is so impactful on their development. And honestly, it’s just incredibly fascinating. It can help you understand your baby’s behavior and how to react to some of those crazy and occasionally frustrating moments. And it helps you make the most of this crucial stage of your child’s development.
For example, did you know that infancy is the only time that language acquisition and brain development are intertwined? Early interaction with foreign language literally creates a different, better brain. This is not true later in life when instead you’re using the brain, you already have to attempt learning a new language. See, fascinating!
On growing up brainy. We look to demystify the science around your baby’s brain development. Direct from the source. We interview scientists and various other professionals from a variety of fields that all come into play during baby’s first year. This includes neuroscience, linguistics, pediatrics, music therapy, and so much more. And as parents ourselves, we know how busy the day can be, so we promise to keep these episodes short and sweet. Less than thirty minutes.
Our intention is to help you nurture your child, not overwhelm them. The methods discussed on the show will be geared towards impacting your baby’s development through natural behaviors and through play. The goal is to provide a stimulating and enjoyable environment for your baby to help them reach their full potential. Together, we can create for them a bright, open future.
We are excited to have you join us on this journey because parenting is tough and we get it. There is tons of information out there and it can be hard to decipher what the most useful methods are and what will really make a difference. Growing up Brainy is here to guide you through the mayhem. So tune in and get ready for some nerdy baby brain goodness.
