LEAD Parent University Keynote with Ashley Merryman

Co-author of the New York Times bestseller NurtureShock, Ashley Merryman challenges commonsense assumptions about parenting with the latest scientific findings. Her book, for example, asserts that pro-social fairy tales might actually trigger bullying behaviors in kids, that getting an early start in the morning might stall high-schoolers’ development, and that, despite their age, tortoises don’t make good babysitters. The book has been featured on Good Morning America, NPR’s All Things Considered, and in Newsweek, and was praised by the New York Times for “calling attention to studies that seldom make their way into the media.” In this lecture, Merryman upends what parents and parents-to-be might assume about their little ones’ development to keep child-rearing strategies from causing more harm than good.
