BookShop West Portal Co-Hosts Po Bronson at St. Ignatius
Don’t miss this opportunity to meet Po Bronson, author of one of the most stunning and revelatory books on parenting in recent memory. NurtureShock: New Thinking about Children
will have you reconsidering some of our most commonly accepted ideas about child rearing.
Some of the chapter subjects listed below will hopefully encourage you to join us at St. Ignatius College Preparatory on Monday, March 8th at 6:30 pm. NurtureShock is a groundbreaking book that delivers solid information based on recent studies. Whether your children are teens or tots, we think this is an evening worth your time.
Hope to see you there!

The Lost Hour
Children get an hour less sleep today than they did 30 years ago. The cost in IQ points, emotional well-being and obesity will stun you.
Why White Parents Don’t Talk About Race
Does teaching children about race and skin color make them better off or worse?
Why Kids Lie
We may treasure honesty, but most classic strategies to promote truthfulness just encourage kids to be better liars.
The Sibling Effect
Freud was wrong. Shakespeare was right. Why siblings really fight.
The Science of Teen Rebellion
Why, for adolescents, arguing with adults is a sign of respect, not disrespect - and arguing is constructive to the relationship, not destructive.
