    What is Raising Human Beings about?

    Raising Human Beings (2016) is part practical guide and part manifesto about the power of collaborative problem-solving. Using threats, bribes, and punishments doesn’t change children’s behavior sustainably. That’s because you just end up suppressing the symptoms of the problem, instead of addressing the root cause. Instead of engaging in power struggles, try asking your children what’s really going on, and brainstorming solutions together. Not only will you come up with better solutions – your relationship will improve dramatically.

    Who should read Raising Human Beings?

    • Parents in the grip of a power struggle with their children
    • Prospective parents who want to learn to communicate constructively 
    • Educators and youth workers looking for new approaches to working with the children in their care
