Books: NurtureShock

April 30, 2010 | Books

I just finished reading NurtureShock: New Thinking about Children by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. I heard about this when someone posted a video with Merryman talking (mostly) about sleep and how devastating it can be to children who don’t get enough. That made sense. I remember when my children were babies, in one sleeping book or another, I read that if their sleeping schedules were off to try putting them to bed earlier instead of later. And it worked. After that, I’ve never underestimated the power and importance of sleep.


This book isn’t just about sleep. It’s about a lot of issues regarding children — from “why kids lie” to “the sibling effect.” It’s all about taking a different look at research and what it’s led us to believe. It provides interesting new ways to think about things.
