|Summary, etc.:|| "Developmental psychologist and philosopher Alison Gopnik argues that the familiar twenty-first-century picture of parents and children is profoundly wrong--it's not just based on bad science, it's bad for kids and parents, too. Drawing on the study of human evolution and her own cutting-edge scientific research into how children learn, Gopnik shows that although caring for children is immensely important, the goal should not be to shape them so they turn out a particular way. Children are designed to be messy and unpredictable, playful and imaginative, and to be very different both from their parents and from one another. The variability and flexibility of childhood allow them to innovate, create, and survive in an unpredictable world. “Parenting" won't make children learn--rather, caring parents let children learn by creating a secure, loving environment"-- Page 2 of book jacket.
