Customer Reviews

Very interesting!  July 2, 2011

Definitely recommend this textbook. It gives you more information to make your own child rearing decisions. It is loaded with studies and research from around the world that looks at conventional wisdom about how kids learn and what we've all assumed was the "best way" of raising kids. This is a well-written, research-based book. I deeply appreciate a textbook that is not just opinion but has basis in fact. I highly recommend this cheap textbook, very interesting.






NurtureShock : New Thinking about Children: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

One of the most influential books about children ever published, NurtureShock offers a revolutionary new perspective on children that upends a library's worth of conventional wisdom. With impeccable storytelling and razor sharp analysis, the authors 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, NurtureShock gets to the core of how we grow, learn and live.

Released in hardcover in September 2009, NurtureShock remained on the New York Times best seller list for three months, and was one of Amazon's bestselling books for 2009. The book has become a worldwide phenomenon with editions published around the world - in fifteen languages, to date.

In addition to Bronson and Merryman's writings on praise first made famous in New York magazine there are nine more equally groundbreaking chapters. Among the topics covered:

Why the most brutal person in a child's life is often a sibling, and how a single aspect of their preschool-aged play can determine their relationship as adults.

When is it too soon - or too late to teach a child about race? Children in diverse schools are less likely to have a cross-racial friendship, not more - so is school diversity backfiring?

Millions of families are fighting to get their kids into private schools and advanced programs as early as possible. But schools are missing the best kids, 73% of the time the new neuroscience explains why.

Why are kids - even those from the best of homes - still aggressive and cruel? The answer is found in a rethinking of parental conflict, discipline, television's unexpected influence, and social dominance.

Parents are desperate to jump start infants' language skills. Recently, scientists have discovered a series of natural techniques that are astonishing in their efficacy - it's not baby videos, sign language, or even the richness of language exposure. It's nothing you've heard before.
