Publisher Description

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 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.

More than child psychology

This book can give an analogous insight into human psychology when dealing with younger peers and employees. A great read backed with scientific research.

Freakonomics for Child-rearing

This book explained some intuitive actions parents take, while dispelling some myths we believe in. It was a great look at scientific research and how we can better understand the minds and behaviors of children. If you enjoyed Freakonomics, you'll love this book.

Must read for intentional parents

This book has influenced my parenting more than any other. It's not a how-to book. It's information that a parent can process and use.
