It's All About We: Rethinking Discipline Using Res&hellip by Diane Gossen
5.0 out of 5 stars Briliant, Jan. 20 2014
Diane Gossen's work is incredible...a real masterpiece in how to raise children to become the kind of people they want to be, rather than what everyone else wants them to be. Her approach is humane, respectful, and common sense......and yet is not what we do with children. We guilt them, shame them, berate them......and all these things undermine what we really want for our children, which is to become compassionate, honest and productive members of our society.
Beyond Discipline: From Compliance to Community, 1&hellip by Alfie Kohn
5.0 out of 5 stars Paradigm-shifting, Jan. 20 2014
This book is sorely needed in our culture - Kohn presents children as "people in the making" rather than wild ruffians who need to be controlled. His work backs up the work of people like Haim Ginott, Thomas Gordon, Dianne Gossen and many others who have a more humanistic approach to raising children than what our culture predominantly sells to parents and teachers. This book is a very important part of a move to more thoughtful and humane ways to raise our young.
