NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children

NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children - Po Bronson, Ashley Merryman If you are a parent or work with children, then you will enjoy this book. The authors reveal how many well-intentioned parenting strategies are not working. Nurture Shock covers a wide variety of parenting topics including how the self-esteem movement has backfired, how children learn about race, language acquisition and education strategies. Very interesting and some of the results are very surprising. My one complaint is that Bronson narrates this book and can be a bit condescending or monotone in his narration.
