Parenting for a Peaceful World
In clear and compelling language, Australian psychologist Robin Grille takes on the Herculean task of exploring the childhood origins of human action and choice, from its most violent to its most humane, for individuals as well as for families and countries, and for the most simple to the most complex behavior - and against all odds, succeeds. This is the book that could save the world, if we can only pay attention.
An essential companion for the "natural parent", the newly-published Parenting for a Peaceful World is a fascinating look at how child-rearing customs have shaped societies and major world events. It reveals how children adapt to different parenting styles and describes how these early experiences underpin the adults they become. This wide-ranging book 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.
