This book answers that question. It lays to rest a lot of myths about childhood and even points out where some of those myths are making us treat our children in ways that could damage them long-term (for instance the routine circumcision of baby boys in the US without anaesthetic because 'little boys are tough'. Actually they're more vulnerable than girls at this stage.) The book is based on solid neuroscientific research and has made a difference to the way I'm raising my daughter. It will also make a difference to the way I raise my son when he's born in a month or so! I really feel as though this is a book every parent should read.
