The Nurture Assumption
by Judith Rich Harris
Judith Rich Harris looks at the idea that a child who can only socialise with adults is at a disadvantage. They need to be able to get along with their peer group. In the old days most children from three onwards would be socialised by the other kids. Judith Rich Harris makes a wonderful argument that we should be less controlling of our children when they are old enough to play with other kids because they have to learn to develop on their own terms.
