Ashely Merryman is the co-author of New York Times bestseller, NurtureShock. One of the most influential books about children ever published, NurtureShock offers a revolutionary new perspective on children that upends a library’s worth of conventional wisdom. The central premise of this book is that many of modern society’s strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring – because key twists in the science have been overlooked. NurtureShock has been featured on Good Morning America, Nightline, All Things Considered, Fresh Air, Newsweek, and many other media sources.
