Imagine a world where war, gun and knife crime, human rights abuses and ecological destruction were 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. And the good news is that the rapid evolution towards non-violent parenting has already yielded the birth of human rights and the spread of democratic thinking, and the book shows this process accelerating -- if we get behind it.
Robin Grille is a Sydney based psychologist and psychotherapist with extensive experience working with individuals, couples and families, and teaching or facilitating groups. His work on child development, parenting issues and family relationships has been widely published in Australia, the USA, Canada, South Africa and Israel.
