Alfie Kohn’s new book challenges Myth of the Spoiled Child

Share with Friends

Thanks to a Twitter conversation about grades, someone mentioned Alfie Kohn, catching the famous author’s attention.


He responded with a tweet about his forthcoming book. I tweeted back at Kohn, asking him what the book was about, and moments later, he shared this: “Thanks for asking. Here’s the flap cover for the forthcoming book (Da Capo Press, April).”

This may seem parenthetical, but I have to say, I just love Twitter.

You can find a synopsis of Kohn’s new book, The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting, at, where you can also pre-order the book at a discounted price.

I ordered my copy today; should be a wonderful spring-break read.
