Welcome to the Phase World Podcast, engaging conversations that cross the boundaries between business, art and the digital world.

What would be the best book for a parent of a newborn? I didn't wanna create a You should book. I wanted a You can book.

That's really an important message is to empower parents that they can do it. You're gonna be good at this. Sometimes you try something and it doesn't work. It's gonna be okay if it didn't work. It's not because you're a failure, it's not because your baby, there's something wrong with your baby. It's because it's hard.

Helping parents understand that I think is really empowering and it helps. Feel better about themselves.

What reading does, it not only helps kids understand that there are stories and books, it also opens up worlds for kids.

Hello, my beautiful people. Thank you for listening to another episode of the Face World Podcast. Today I have Dr. Mariana Gluzman, who was introduced to me by my associate producer, Adam Leer. They were both at the Common. School back in the eighties. And as you guys know, at this point, Commonwealth School is one of the primary resources for Face World Podcast guests.

In 2016, Maria co-authored a book with Dr. Marta Kilner called I Love You, like Sunshine, how Everyday Play and Bedtime Stories Grow, love connections, and Brain Power, A book for babies and. Dr. Gluzman has been a pediatrician for 20 years who also raised three beautiful children of her own. She has heard hundreds of parents joke about needing a parenting manual.

The usual worries about eating, peeing, pooping, rashes, sneezing, and so on are easy for a pediatrician to handle. But many of the questions underlying those practical concerns are not as. How will I be a parent? How can I prepare my baby for the challenges we all face? What if I mess up? A few friends of mine recently gave birth to their children.

I can't imagine how they feel they actually send you home with this baby. I can't wait to share this episode with them to gain a new perspective. For example, reading aloud to your children sounds like a mundane task, easiest thing to do, but turns out it's also one of the most important things that parents can do to help their children succeed.
