What if we told you...

that dishonesty in children is a positive trait

that arguing in front of your kids can make you a good role model

Using a cutting-edge combination of behavioural psychology and neuroscience, award-winning journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman have produced an innovative, counter-intuitive read that will change the way we interact with our children forever.
