Product description

Review

""Unconditional Parenting" is going to make you think--hard--about the type of relationship you want to have with your child, about your parenting priorities, and about how to avoid many of the mistakes of our predecessors. It's what we've come to expect from Alfie Kohn, and this is unquestionably one of his most persuasive, important works. For your sake and your child's...read it!"

--Ross W. Greene, "The Explosive Child"

"This book underscores an important parenting principle: Discipline is more about having the right relationship with your child than having the right techniques."

--William Sears, "The Baby Book and The Discipline Book"

"A gift to parents! Armed with voluminous research, Alfie Kohn exposes the harm inherent in widely accepted disciplinary practices and offers a variety of powerful alternatives that make it possible for children to become their most thoughtful, caring, responsible selves."

--Adele Faber, "How to Talk So Kids Will Listen & Listen So Kids Will Talk"

"Alfie Kohn holds a crucial position in the American dialogue on parenting. "Unconditional Parenting" is a very important book that can challenge, support, and even change our perspective on what parents do."

--Michael Gurian, "The Wonder of Boys and The Wonder of Girls"

"Alfie Kohn does it again: He takes a topic (parenting) that has been studied and written about for years and gives us a wise way of adjusting our lenses so that we really see it clearly. He doesn't give simple rules, he gives deep understanding and a core foundation for parents."

--JoAnn Deak, "Girls Will Be Girls"

"Powerful alternatives to help children become their most caring, responsible selves." -- Adele Faber, coauthor of How to Talk So Kids Will Listen . . . --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
