Child Development. All in the Family.
Jacobson, Linda
Teacher, v10 n3 p19-20 Nov-Dec 1998
Discusses the controversy concerning "The Nurture Assumption," a book that suggests children are shaped by their peers more than their parents. The message runs counter to decades of child development research and recent findings that parents are crucial in children's emotional and intellectual development. This paper examines criticism of the book that suggests that children are influenced by many factors. (SM)
