Win a copy of NurtureShock!

Yep, you read that right! It is giveaway time on MBW!

We’ve discussed a few chapters of NurtureShock here on MBW (race, more race and sleep). My copy of the book is full of folded down corners on pages that I found particularly interesting and there are a few chapters I’m planning to reread because I want to discuss them with my husband. On our blog, we focused on the chapters that pertained the most to our particular families but all of the other chapters were equally intriguing. Even my coworker that doesn’t have kids picked it up and skimmed through it with interest.

One thing that makes NurtureShock especially interesting (and stand out from typical “parenting” books) are the scientific studies cited throughout the book. I finished the book wanting a second book that told me what I was supposed to do with all this ground-breaking information that turned a lot of my ideas and parenting practices upside down.

Mind-opening, interesting, intriguing and a good read that will make you want more – I say it’s a winner!

    Just spent 5 days with my grandson Alex. What a joy. For you young mom’s, remember how important grandparent relationships are with your little one. The time Alex spent with Papa and I were priceless and can’t wait to do it again. Share your children often.

    I would to read a book by these authors on how to apply tools of the mind to my toddlers.
    I also would love to know what their take on home schooling is.

    I’d like to see a blog about raising children sensitive to other’s religions and how to handle children who want to influence your own child’s religious beliefs. And I’d love to win the book. :)

    How wonderful it would be to receive a copy. I’d like you to write about how to put some of the information in Nurture Shock into practice. Give some examples, i.e. instead of (blank) try (blank).

    I just started following you on Twitter. Nice blog!

  8. Just tweeted about the contest (my twitter name is zooktutoring). Very exciting!!! I am a huge nurtureshock fan and would love to have my very own lil’ copy to dog-ear and scribble all over.

    I am now following @momblogwork on Twitter. I have been listening to NurtureShock on my iPod and have been itching to get my hands on an actual copy of the book!

  10. Love this book and would love to have my own copy!

    As for what you should write about next, I know you already do your Good Stuff posts to practice gratitude, but I wonder if you have any tips in helping children see the world with more grateful eyes.

  11. You should write about potty training. I’ve heard that in previous decades parents started (and completed) training when the children were younger. I think that’s interesting.

  12. I’m now following @momblogwork on Twitter. :)

  13. I also tweeted about the content: “I’m hoping to win the book @nurtureshock from @momblogwork [and linked to this post]“

  14. Heard loads about this book!

    Do write about how successful blogging/home working mums got started. Somehow I never believe anyone would be interested and loose initiative.

    Keep the great posts coming.

    I’m curious to know if there is any research out on bullying and “anti” bullying training for children. Ways to help them become bully proof as well as a better understanding of why children bully and how they can be redirected when they do.

    I would love to win a copy of the amazing book NutureShock. I just found this website thru theirs, but am hope to find some stories about being a working mom with twins. Not doing it now, but will be in the not-so-distant future…

    Just started following @momblogwork on twitter. Would love my own copy of NurtureShock.

    I would also be interested in more articles about finding work/life balance from moms who HAVE to work, not moms who CHOOSE to work. It would seem that when you have to work, the choice is simple, and the guilt would go away, but that is not the case for me.

    I was thrilled when a friend loaned me a copy of Nurture Shock. The insights are endless and I can’t wait for your next book release. As far as the topic, how about bullying? In lieu of all the bully prevention programs our children receive today and shocking news reports about kids “snapping” at school in rage and violence against teachers and peers, I’m curious to hear what your research would say about this topic that is all the buzz now.

    You should write about how we need to remember that children are not little adults. Sometimes we forget that they don’t have the same reasoning and forethought that we do as adults.
