Editorial Reviews

Saralea Chazan
Eileen Johnson has written a comprehensive statement about the emotional needs of children. Relevant reading for parents, teachers, and all people who care about and care for children.
Gerald Schoenewolf
Eileen Johnson has written a much needed and succinct guide to understanding the emotional needs of children. The Children's Bill of Emotional Rights is not only a Bill of Rights for children, but also a step-by-step primer for teachers, parents, and health professionals on helping children to grow by respecting their emotions. Johnson uses her experiences in working with preschool children and their parents to intersperse her book with a wealth of illuminating examples. She emphasizes the importance of listening to children, telling them the truth, protecting them from bullies, and allowing them the full expression (in constructive ways) of their feelings.
Leon Hoffman M.D.
Eileen Johnson is to be congratulated for her sensitive and emotionally connected description of educational work with children. She clearly describes how “if a child is respected emotionally, if he is treated with respect for his rights, he will be likely to develop into a positive, creative, and socially adaptive adult.” She is sensitive to children’s needs for adults who know the great responsibility of working with children. She says, “Listening to children does not mean asking open-ended questions of a young child like: ‘What do you want to do today?’ She clearly understands that “Limiting choices is part of adult’s role” as well as drawing “realistic boundaries.”
