This morning I went to the Huckleberry Cafe in Santa Monica and had a nice quiet breakfast by myself. I ordered poached eggs and grilled vegetables, Fiji water, and a biscuit. While having my breakfast, I read
NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children.
The book pulled me in and I sat at Huckleberry for the next 2 hours reading half of the book.
It was quite an eye opener. I read about how sleep deprivation affects children of all ages, what type of praise should be given, why kids lie, how not talking about race affects our children, why siblings really fight, self control, and so many other topics.
I sat there reading this book and learning things about raising my 5 year old that I never knew.
This book is worth picking up. Get it and read it over the holidays when you have a minute to spare between Thanksgiving meals and holiday shopping.
