Enhance your purchase
Imagine a world where war, tyranny, human rights abuses and ecological destruction are relics of the past. What if the means to create such a reality were in the hands of mothers and fathers, and all those involved in the care and education of children?
Parenting for a Peaceful World is a fascinating look at how parenting customs have shaped societies and major world events. It reveals how children adapt to different parenting styles and how these early experiences underpin the adults they become.
In this expansive book, Robin Grille draws on revolutionary new research to argue that the safeguarding of children’s emotional development is the key to creating a more peaceful and harmonious world.
Parenting for a Peaceful World is a book for parents, child health professionals, and adults learningto be whole again. It is a manifesto for policy-makers and a resource for teachers. If the findings outlined in these pages are put into practice, the result may be a revolution of peace, humanity, and a world beyond our imagining.

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.
I recommend this book over "The History of Childhood", since Robin Grille writes for the lay reader, covers history (using Lloyd de Mause's and other psychohistorian's research), goes over infant and child psychology, reveals groundbreaking science, and provides means to become better parents.
I have found the following terms synonymous: peaceful parenting, unconditional parenting, helping mode parenting, philosophical parenting, and non-violent parenting.
