Blog Tour & Giveaway: NurtureShock by Pro Bonson

Wicked Wednesday Blog Tour Sept 2 - Sept 9

Nurture Shock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman
* Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
* Pub. Date: September 2009
* ISBN-13: 9780446504126
* 352pp
Synopsis: 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.

*We have 5 Copies Available*
