This book explains some of the fascinating new research that is being done in the field of child development and how much of it is changing the way we traditioanlly thought was best for raising our children. It turns out that praising children's abilities isn't what helps them succeed, but praising the effort they put into their tasks makes all the difference. Many of the popular baby DVD's that are supposed to give children a head start are actually backfiring and decreasing their vocabulary growth compared to children who don't watch them. You can also learn more about why children lie and just how critical getting the right amount of sleep is (even for teenageers) in order to do well in school.
