A review by Bill W. Hillman, PhD, Professor Emeritus, University of Arizona ¿ Retired psychologist and marriage and family therapist. We live in a world where we have the potential for unprecedented progress, limitless opportunities for inclusion and mutual respect, and challenging possibilities for respectful dialog to solve the thorny issues that divide us. However, in reality we live in a rude world where we seek personal advantage and the domination of our particular political agenda at the expense of what is best for the whole of society. We seek to maintain our advantage in order to ¿win¿, at the expense of others who of necessity must ¿lose¿. We seem to have lost the art of cooperation in order to solve our mutual problems. How are responsible parents to raise respectful kids in such a rude world that has become our 21st century reality. How are these kids to grow up and, as adults, make a difference in this world? How are they to learn quiet compassion for others, rather than becoming part of the domination system or spending their lives fighting the domination system. The authors of this book present practical, down to earth strategies for answering these perplexing questions that challenge parents today. The authors present the foundational material for the time honored and effective parenting strategy that they and others have written about before. However, they do so with a fresh, creative, and easy to understand style that will encourage, motivate, and stimulate new and experienced parents alike. Parenting is hard work! Growing up in today¿s world is even harder! There are no easy answers or caned quick fixes. However, the authors present a proven process that can be applied to the specific concerns of individual ¿real time¿ families. The issues and examples presented by the authors are contemporary concerns faced every day by families in our complex society that were largely unheard of only a few years ago. A particular emphasis in the book is the ever increasing problem of violence faced in families, schools, and the total culture of our ¿rude world¿ today. I could not be more enthusiastic in my endorsement of this extremely helpful and readable book by some of the most important and experienced authors in the field of parenting today. The book is a must buy for parents that are serious about teaching their children the power of mutual respect and consideration.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As a mother of four children in todays world I applaud the authors of 'Raising Respectful Kids in a Rude World.' I found the examples and techniques offered to be practical and empowering in developing mutual respect between both parent/child and peers. I highly recommend this book to anyone who lives with, teaches, or loves a child and is looking to strengthen and improve their relationship through mutual respect.Was this review helpful?
