NutureShock

Nuture Shock is defined by the authors as "panic, common among new parents, that the mythical fountain of knowledge is not magically kicking in at all." Ever feel like what you're doing isn't working? Want to change up for something different? With 10 different chapters ranging from IQ tests to lying, this book uses real research to explore what works and doesn't work.
