Lael Whitehead tells how she took her children out of school and allowed them to learn from life in a natural, self-directed way, without curriculum, grades, discipline or rewards. Whitehead describes the various ways in which her three daughters each designed their own unique educations. She introduces her concept of radical respect as the cornerstone of compassionate parenting. Sharing stories from her own experience, she shows that when children are deeply respected seen as they are, and not as we might wish them to be they flourish, both emotionally and intellectually. Respectful parenting allows children to trust their own instincts and to pursue their individual passions and curiosities. They grow up to be creative, resilient and inner-directed adults who stay open and engaged with the world throughout their lives.
