Summary
Award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman demonstrate that many of modern society's strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science of child development have been overlooked. The authors discuss the inverse power of praise, why insufficient sleep adversely affects kids' capacity to learn, why white parents don't talk about race, why kids lie, why evaluation methods for "giftedness" and accompanying programs don't work, and why siblings really fight
Summary
Argues that popular nuture-based parenting techniques are proving unsuccessful because they fail to include key aspects of scientific research, in an analysis that covers such topics as aggression, intelligence, and moral behavior
