In Respectful Parents, Respectful Kids a different idea is brought to light, one in which the children are just as human as the parents and therefore *gasp* just as important. Instead of presenting the parent as a god, the parent is simply a human being entrusted with the care and well-being of a much smaller, less-experienced, but no less important, human being. There is no berating, there are no time-outs, and, most importantly, there are no beatings. All I could say as I put it down after my initial reading was, "Where was this book when I was pregnant with DB1?"
The idea seems to be one of prepared and demonstrative parenting as opposed to the reactionary ideals of more conservative pundits. Parents guide their children into correct behavior rather than brow-beat them in that direction. The parents are human and allowed to make mistakes, which of course they should own up to. As opposed to the "must" of consistency-or-else-failure that I have read in pretty much every conservative parenting book.
Unfortunately, most Christians will never get past the first page (there is a quote by Gloria Steinem on it).Read more ›
The book is organized into three parts. 1) Foundations for Respect and Cooperation; 2) 7 Keys to Cooperation; and 3) Family Activities and Stories from the No Fault Zone. Non violent communication is a foundation of the book, and other Puddle Dancer Press books elaborate on the core ideas presented in this book. Don't pass on this useful handbook, which teaches that respecting all family members' needs equally will lead to a healthy, happy home.
