The Gardener and the Carpenter

This book challenges the seemingly “good parenting” philosophy that practically becomes an obsessive, goal oriented exercise to mould the child in a particular way. Deriving lessons from the human evolution and her own scientific research into how children learn, the author suggests that children are inherently messy and playful, maybe wired to be completely different from both parents and other children, and this variability lets them innovate, create and survive in this unpredictable world. Mindful parenting creates a secure and loving environment where kids can learn and evolve naturally.
