One undeniable side effect of the pandemic is that a lot of parents have spent far more time than they ever expected with their kids, and more often than not were left questioning their own parenting decisions frequently along the way. Given that, Melinda Wenner Moyer’s new book, How To Raise Kids Who Aren’t Assholes, could not be more timely as it shares science based strategies for better parenting from tots to teens. A contributing editor at Scientific American magazine, a regular contributor to a number of national magazines and newspapers, and a former parenting columnist at Slate, Melinda has done the research on this remarkably timely topic, and shares some highlights here today. The mere fact that Indre doesn’t read parenting books, but highly recommends Melinda’s, is proof enough that today’s examination of the science behind raising children who are not assholes is well worth the listen.
