This book is exceptionally written and researched.He has many stories,facts,ideas from other parents,philosophies,educators and many quotes.He takes nuggets from many researchers and specialists.They are all placed in one location.The wording and book is easy to follow.The book This is wonderful for busy parents.The book does not give you specific things on what to do in situations with your children,but does give you main philosophies to follow when you are raising your children.So this is a great parenting book.
Arnold’s book takes on technology,standardized testing,overstimulation,academic pressure,marketing to children,over-diagnosis and much,much more.He calls on everyone who loves children to fight all these threats to childhood and to find creative ways to help children thrive. Every parent, teacher, and child care provider has the power to make a difference in a child's life, by giving children time to play, access to nature, and personal attention.Also the most important thing by defending their right to remain children.I really loved this book.
