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 in our worst ideas, using break-through scientific studies to prove that our instincts and received wisdom are all wrong. Nutureshock is the Freakonomics of childhood and adolescence, exploring logic-defying insights that have far-reaching relevance for us all.
