How to Raise Kids Who Aren’t Assholes is a clear, actionable, sometimes humorous (but always science-based) guide for parents on how to shape their kids into honest, kind, generous, confident, independent, and resilient people…who just might save the world one day.

In this groundbreaking guide, neurologist and sleep expert Dr. Chris Winter identifies the signs and symptoms of the most common sleep disorders affecting children today. From common issues such as too much screen time and night terrors, to narcolepsy, sleep apnea, and more, The Rested Child leaves no stone unturned.

In Hard Landings, Cammie McGovern expands on her #1 New York Times piece, “Looking into the Future for a Child with Autism,” and provides a game-changing exploration of what the future holds for the first generation of mainstreamed neurodiverse kids that is coming of age.
