Where to buy it


This special three-book bundle collects sage advice and guidance for today’s parent struggling to keep up in a rapidly-changing world. Two titles by Michael Reist discuss education; school is our children’s second home. They will spend more time there than anywhere else in their formative years. We all need to talk honestly about the nature of this environment. What Every Parent Should Know About School is an honest, positive, thought-provoking look at what schools are today and what they could be in the future. Raising Boys in a New Kind of World is a passionate call for greater empathy. The more we know about boys, the more realistic our expectations of them will be.

Combining the expertise of its author – a celebrated expert in parent-infant mental health and mother of two – with the latest findings in gene-by-environment interactions, epigenetics, behavioural science, and attachment theory, Scientific Parenting describes how children’s genes determine their sensitivity to good or bad parenting, how environmental cues can switch critical genes on or off, and how addictive tendencies and mental health problems can become hardwired into the human brain.
