"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Eileen Johnson has written a comprehensive statement about the emotional needs of children. Relevant reading for parents, teachers, and all people who care about and care for children. (Saralea Chazan, PhD, clinical psychologist in private practice in Greenwich Village, New York City)
Eileen Johnson has written a much needed and succinct guide to understanding the emotional needs of children. The Children's Bill of Emotional Rights is not only a Bill of Rights for children, but also a step-by-step primer for teachers, parents, and health professionals on helping children to grow by respecting their emotions. Johnson uses her experiences in working with preschool children and their parents to intersperse her book with a wealth of illuminating examples. She emphasizes the importance of listening to children, telling them the truth, protecting them from bullies, and allowing them the full expression (in constructive ways) of their feelings. (Gerald Schoenewolf, PhD, author, 101 Common Therapeutic Blunders)
Eileen Johnson is to be congratulated for her sensitive and emotionally connected description of educational work with children. She clearly describes how “if a child is respected emotionally, if he is treated with respect for his rights, he will be likely to develop into a positive, creative, and socially adaptive adult.” She is sensitive to children’s needs for adults who know the great responsibility of working with children. She says, “Listening to children does not mean asking open-ended questions of a young child like: ‘What do you want to do today?’ She clearly understands that “Limiting choices is part of adult’s role” as well as drawing “realistic boundaries.”

Eileen Johnson clearly understands the emotional needs of children and expresses how we can better attend to them. As a mother of 2 and an elementary educator, Ms. Johnson's knowledge has helped me to be a better listener and supporter of my children and students. I found her information and techniques to be thought provoking as well as clearly exemplified in the methodology.
This book is so invaluable that I have arranged to have a book study with my educator colleagues in the new year to work towards integrating the wisdom set forth in the book. We are hopeful to even have Ms. Johnson join our group since we are near NYC and her school.
Ms. Johnson insight is beyond compare and will change how you encounter your children and/or students on a daily basis.
