If you haven't already read it or heard about it, grab a copy of Nurture Shock, by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. Get one today and find a cozy spot to jump into some fascinating reading. "The central premise of this book is that many of modern society's most popular strategies for raising children are in fact backfiring because key points in the science of child development and behavior have been overlooked." Susie was so impressed with the chapter on sleep that she changed the camp's schedule to allow for an hour more sleep each night. Other chapters discuss the praise, lying, sibling relationships, teen rebellion, and language skills. It really does make you take a step back and look at raising children in a new way.
