Link to NPR’s interview with Alison Gopnik, author of “The Gardener and the Carpenter”

Hello Dear Readers!

I was recently forwarded a link to an NPR interview with author Alison Gopnik regarding her book about parenting styles in modern America, The Gardener and the Carpenter.  The interview is part of a month-long project of collecting interviews and stories for NPR’s project “How to Raise a Human.”

So I eagerly read the written overview of the interview, and I was fascinated by what I had read.  I must confess, at this point, I haven’t even listened to the entire interview yet, but I wanted to go ahead and share the link to the interview here on the blog.  I plan on listening to the full interview when I get a few moments of quiet time to myself (29.22 minutes, specifically) this weekend.  Maybe you want to do the same, and then join me here next week where we can review what the author has to say and reflect on our own thoughts about parenting styles.

Until next time!  Peace and love to you!
