Giveaway: NutureShock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman

Posted on: September 11, 2009

Nuture_Shock_Book_Cover

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.

Thanks to Anna at Hachette, I have permission to give out 5 copies of NutureShock by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman.

As a child I wanted to be either a librarian or an airline stewardess. I actually interviewed for the stewardess (now called Flight Attendant) position at age 18, but at the time they turned me down for being too short (I am 5’5″.)

I always wanted to be an actress.

I wanted to be a lawyer when I was a child. I remember being able once in a while being able to watch Perry Mason. Unfortuneately my mother wanted me to be an accountant, but I did end up with a commerce degree. Cheers. polo-puppy-fluffy AT hotmail *dot* com
