Pros: change what you thought you knew about parenting
Cons: hard to think how to go against the grain so much
Alfie Cohen is an amazing author and activist. His book is thought provoking and challenging the normal ways of how we think as parents.
I read this and realised a lot of my parenting has been about manipulation and control. I am deeply interested in spirituality and meditation and a goal if you will about parenting is for me to say I love my children unconditionally.
It was a bit of an eye opener to see how I don't really do this. How I am actually treating them in ways that I want them to be and do just as I say.
Very radical and very appealing for any parents brave enough to want to make a difference...
