A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK How much credit do parents deserve when their children turn out welt? How much blame when they turn out badly? Judith Rich Harris has a message that will change parents' lives: The "nurture assumption" -- the belief that what makes children turn out the way they do, aside from their genes, is the way their parents bring them up -- is nothing more than a cultural myth. This electrifying book explodes some of our unquestioned beliefs about children and parents and gives us a radically new view of childhood. Harris looks with a fresh eye at the real lives of real children to show that it is what they experience outside the home, in the company of their peers, that matters most, Parents don't socialize children; children socialize children. With eloquence and humor, Judith Harris explains why parents have little power to determine the sort of people their children will become. The Nurture Assumption is an important and entertaining work that brings together insights from psychology, sociology, anthropology, primatology, and evolutionary biology to offer a startling new view of who we are and how we got that way.

As a young boy, his difficulty in concentrating was diagnosed as ADHD. In school, his mind always seemed to wander until he found an activity that he liked. By using that one activity, his mother was able to teach him to focus and develop self-discipline. Debbie Phelps found a way to reach past her son's ADHD--and that young boy, Michael Phelps, went on to win twenty-two Olympic medal and break thirty-nine world records in swimming. Now the principle that guided Debbie Phelps' approach is the subject of this breakthrough title. Written by three experts in their fields--a pediatric neurologist, a psychiatrist, and a martial arts instructor--ADHD & the Focused Mind provides a complete program for instilling the ability to focus in both children and adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. For centuries, martial arts teachers have taught their young students the art of combat, from Akido to Karate to Taekwondo. However, as varied as each form of martial arts may be, they all share an underlying skill, and it is the same skill that world class athletes have in common. They all base their techniques on the ability to clearly focus on the task that is in front of them, whether it's defeating an opponent or coming in first. In this book, the authors have created a unique coaching program that focuses on acquiring this very skill to overcome ADHD. The book begins by explaining the common signs of ADHD. It then looks at the brain and discusses what researchers have discovered about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The remaining chapters detail the components of the program, including its principles, its goals, and the practical ways in which these goals can be achieved. The authors recognize that all children are different, so the program has the flexibility to work within a child's comfort level while still attaining the necessary level of discipline. The text concludes with a discussion of medications and ADHD, and what's right for your child. Some of the most successful people in the world have ADHD, but just like star athletes, they have discovered that developing their own unique ways of focusing enables them to get ahead. ADHD & the Focused Mind provides coaching techniques that can profoundly improve the life of any child suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
