would thrive and act responsibly without such painful measures. Raising Our
Children, Raising Ourselves is the answer to this universal wish. It is not
about gentle ways to control a child, but about a way of being and of
understanding a child so she/he can be the best of herself, not because she
fears you, but because she wants to, of her own free will.

and The Future of Humanity.""

truth, no matter how much it might challenge us or make us uncomfortable.
