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?
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.
