Still image from Early Life: The Mayor’s Dream

Amilcar Huancahuari Tueros is the Mayor of Santa Nazarena in the Peruvian Andes. Tueros believes that the early stimulation of children's brains can make for a more prosperous, less violent society, and some Harvard scientists are trying to decide if scientific data supports this theory. Compares and contrasts some traditional parenting methods-such as not talking to children or avoiding eye contact-and how these practices are changing. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) audio description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
