9/17/09: NurtureShock

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Did you know that exposing kids to day-to-day marital conflict may actually be good for them? Or that young children are more aggressive after watching TV shows like Arthur than Power Rangers? Science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman say that many of our child-rearing strategies are backfiring - and that good intentions aren't the same as good ideas. Thursday, they join Doug to talk about their new book NurtureSchock - New Thinking About Children.
