Publisher Description

An eye-opening guide to the world's best parenting strategies

Research reveals that American kids lag behind in academic achievement, happiness, and wellness. Christine Gross-Loh exposes culturally determined norms we have about "good parenting," and asks, Are there parenting strategies other countries are getting right that we are not? This book takes us across the globe and examines how parents successfully foster resilience, creativity, independence, and academic excellence in their children. Illuminating the surprising ways in which culture shapes our parenting practices, Gross-Loh offers objective, research-based insight such as:

● Co-sleeping may promote independence in kids.

● "Hoverparenting" can damage a child's resilience.

● Finnish children, who rank among the highest academic achievers, enjoy multiple recesses a day.

● Our obsession with self-esteem may limit a child’s potential.
