Review: NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children by Po Bronson & Ashley Merryman
NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children by Po Bronson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I've had this book sitting on my bedside table since I won it in 2009 in a blog giveaway. It sounded interesting since I have two five year olds but I just don't typically read a lot of parenting non-fiction. I just rarely find it to be useful to me as a parent. I'm almost always bored half to death and come away with less than I'd hoped. I am almost constantly disappointed when I try the genre.
This one is a solid 3 star for me. It didn't blow me away but it was interesting and not a difficult read. There was some interesting information that has me re-thinking how I parent our children. It was a fairly interesting read ... I wasn't bored to tears as I usually am but I wasn't so compelled that I couldn't stop reading. In fact, I was pretty much ready for it to be over by the last chapter.
I think this is a better than average parenting book. But, frankly, nothing in it revolutionized the way that I parent our children.
