Current Research Projects:

Following on the whopping success of our article for New York magazine on the science of praise, I am working with Ashley Merryman on a new book based on counterintuitive findings from the science of parenting. It turns out that many of our common assumptions are plum wrong. This is not a parenting manual; rather, it's an intellectual journey through some facinating science. It will appeal to parents and non-parents alike.

I invite you to get a preview of the book and to take a survey, simultaneously. It's fun and interesting.  Click here to take the survey.

We will be interviewing teachers, parents, and counselors, to see how the science stacks up against the experiences of real people. If you have an interesting story to share, please write to me.
