As someone that attempts to integrate ahimsa, nonviolence, into all aspects of my life, I found Alfie's book very helpful in extending these principles into my parenting. I recommend it to all parents.

This is a different kind of parenting book, but I am very glad I read it (carefully and with an open mind).Some will dismiss this book as advocating permissiveness or being idealistic. Kohn addresses the former logically and persuasively (that he is not advocating it, but a different parenting style altogether) and the latter, if he is too idealistic, it is about how parents can change rather than how children should be treated. I have 2 young children and this book voiced much of what I had been feeling and frightened me in that I saw so much I could change. His reccommendations are hard to implement but worth it, not just in light of his well-researched arguements, but from reflection my own thoughts and feelings.

"Staff Pick" by ,

A must read! Parenting has come around to attachment again, and moved far, far away from the punitive cruelties of Victorian caregivers. Alfie Kohn has applied, in academic terms, the reasons to parent unconditionally. We have evolved!

"Synopsis" by , From a nationally respected educator, the author of "Punished by Rewards" and "The Schools Our Children Deserve," comes a provocative challenge to the conventional wisdom about raising children.
