Growing Up In Trust
Raising Kids Without Rewards and Punishment
Based on the ideas of Marshall Rosenberg and Alfie Kohn, Growing up in Trust looks at the impact of reward and punishment on children and on the relationship between children and their parents, teachers and other grown-ups around them.
The book clearly guides the reader through the process of the shift away from a reliance on right/wrong thinking towards an approach based on trust.
It highlights our role in nurturing children’s inherent morality and fostering a sense of partnership in finding interdependent solutions, where everyone’s needs matter.
The text is littered with anecdotal examples and each chapter contains a number of experiential exercises or thought provoking questions.
