Nurture Shock

 

I enjoyed the book “Nurture Shock” although it wasn’t as groundbreaking as the reviews made it out to be, overall it was an interesting read. Some quick takes:

 

  • Praising children can cause more harm than good and doesn’t necessarily = encouragement/ motivation
  • Self-esteem is overrated
  • White families don’t talk about race and should
  • Sleep deprivation makes children fat not TV
  • educational TV is trash perhaps worse than Trash TV
  • Children grow into lying not out of it
  • Permissive parenting isn’t effective
