9780091933777: Nurtureshock: Why Everything We Thought About Children is Wrong

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.

"An explosive new book... Many of the findings in Nurtureshock are not what we parents expect or want to hear, but we have to hear it" ( Daily Mail)

Book Description:

Groundbreaking work that will change the way we think about the young forever
