You are wrong about how you raise your kids

I heard a fascinating Fresh Air interview with Po Bronson, one of the authors of the new book NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children, which is about parenting.  It's different from a lot of other books on this subject in that it's based on actual research, which is often at odds with our parenting instincts. In other words, it's...............................(wait for it).....................(here comes my favorite word)........................counterintuitive!

By the way, the Fresh Air page has an excerpt of the book. It's a chapter about lying, which is a great connection to this blog, since one of my themes here is being honest with ourselves about our behavior and the motivation for our behavior.
