About the Author
Robin Grille is a father, psychologist in private practice and a parenting educator. His articles on parenting and child development have been widely published and translated in Australia and around the world. The first edition of Parenting for a Peaceful World (2005) received international acclaim and led to speaking engagements around Australia, the US, UK and New Zealand. Robin's second book, Heart to Heart Parenting (2008), was first published in Australia by ABC Books, and is now available in an updated US edition. Robin's work is animated by his belief that humanity's future is largely dependent on the way we collectively relate to our children.
Robin's experiential, skills-based and informational parenting courses have helped many people to embrace parenting as a transformative, personal growth journey. Drawing from 25 years' clinical experience and from leading-edge neuropsychological research, Robin's seminars and courses focus on healthy emotional development for children as well as parents; while building supportive, co-operative parenting communities.

portray what's current. A healthy chunk of this book is a history of Child Abuse since ancient
(What's new and pink about this subject, and not so current in *Parenting*, is the neurology of the newborn,
i.e.the neonate's brain is only 25% developed at birth and the part that is developed is the reptilian brain.
The social brain (or limbic system) is not there at birth, much less the prefrontal cortex (the thinking brain).
The mother or primary care-giver is the implicit MODEL to help grow this unformed brain.
However baby's whole body is SENTIENT. Her senses are multi-fold and starting to be so, long
before birth. While parents are trying to turn their babies into model achievers, they fail to focus first on what physically
develops first! Attachment. Nils Bergman might fill out the baby's needs picture with Kangaroo Care. Safety for mothers and babies
is part and parcel of the healthy brain development of newborns. Also, the subject of medical interventions
and pharmaceuticals literally changing the recipe of the *bun in the oven*, would beef-up Grill's overview.
Robin Grille gives some valuable tips on more thoughtful and non-violent child rearing practices at the end.
As a woman, I see the usual failure to expose the scary facts: like...there are over 800,000 registered
sex offenders (mostly male) in the US alone, in 2015. And no one has figured out a way to regulate, or civilize,
or stop recidivism in this population. This is an important, though certainly unpleasant part of our social history,
and ripe for examination.
