Parenting Books Giveaway, Part II: NurtureShock (8/20) CLOSED

Thursday, July 30, 2009 Posted by Dina N

Book 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 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.

    This book looks great! I read and loved Mary Pipher's The Shelter of Each Other. It's been around for a while, but is fantastic. Thanks for the giveaway. I'd love to win this book! (If I don't, I'll probably check it out anyway!)
