Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is really a treasure to me. It's not really a how-to for parenting. There are no formulas for success, which any parent quickly discovers anyway. I love the viewpoints of the author--the child as apprentice, thoughts on materialism and media, the home environment and clothing, and independence versus freedom. If you're looking to sift through the noise and find what is essential for your family, this is the book to help part the clouds.

Format: Paperback
Understanding parenting by thinking about who is a child, what is a parent, and why does a child need a parent, leaves dogma behind and brings the reader to the reality of daily living.

Combining her experience as a mother and a grandmother with her studies in psychology and social work, the author presents a warm and human way of understanding the nature and needs of children. Parents and professionals working with children will find this a helpful book for understanding the needs of children, developing an awareness of their individual differences and observing how behaviour is learned.

I found this book to be very down-to-earth, practical and calming. The author is familiar with Rudolf Steiner's teachings and the Waldorf education ideas. You can trust your instincts and travel a path of parenting between over-permissiveness and strictness. Chapters include: Parenting today, a child is born, creating his world, the apprentice, learning about the world, the golden mean, personal space, the artificial world, truth and reality, the handicapped child, independence vs. freedom, and humanness. Highly recommended.
