Nurtureshock: Why Everything We Thought About Children is Wrong

Author(s): Po Bronson


What if we told you...that dishonesty in children is a positive trait...that arguing in front of your kids can make you a good role model...and that if you praise your children you risk making them fail...and it was all true? Using a cutting-edge combination of behavioural psychology and neuroscience, award-winning journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman have produced an innovative, counter-intuitive read that will change the way we interact with our children forever. They demonstrate that for years our best intentions with children have been our worst ideas, using break-through scientific studies to prove that our instincts and received wisdom are all wrong. Nurtureshock is the Freakonomics of childhood and adolescence, exploring logic-defying insights that have far-reaching relevance for us all.
