In a world of modern, involved, caring parents, why are so
many kids aggressive and cruel? Where is intelligence hidden
in the brain, and why does that matter? Why do cross-racial
friendships decrease in schools that are more integrated? If
98% of kids think lying is morally wrong, then why do 98% of
kids lie? What's the single most important thing that helps
infants learn language?
NurtureShock is a groundbreaking collaboration between
award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley
Merryman. They argue that when it comes to children, we've
mistaken good intentions for good ideas. With impeccable
storytelling and razor-sharp analysis, they demonstrate that
many of modern society's strategies for nurturing children
are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science
have been overlooked.
Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors' work is an
insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend
children's (and adults') lives.
