Po Bronson, co-author of Nurture Shock: New Thinking about Children, will speak at Aragon High School in San Mateo on April 14, 2010, at 7:00pm. His talk will focus on key scientific findings which challenge conventional wisdom about raising children.

Conventional widsom tells us many things about raising children. In the past 20 years, children have been excessively praised for their intelligence, but Bronson's work has revealed that effort is more important than intellect. Further, since the success of the Civil Rights Movement, many white parents have focused on creating a diverse racial environment for their children with assumption that exposing children to diversity will automatically increase their tolerance and decrease their racism. Bronson explains why this isn't the case and what parents can do to truly raise tolerant children. Bronson's book also focuses on how adults inadvertently teach children to lie, why teenagers argue, and how to foster self-control in children.

Tickets for Bronson's talk can be purchased through the Burlingame Mother's Club's website: www.burlingamemothers.org/pobronson.html. Non-members will pay $20 and members will pay $10. Seating is limited and tickets will not be available for purchase at the door.
