Overview

Raising Peaceable Powerful Children by Barbara Hill Steinau

Raising Peaceable Powerful Children is a gentle guide by an experienced preschool teacher/director for teachers, parents and others doing the difficult and important work of helping young children grow up whole.

Countless books have been written about parenting. Their number indicates how much parents want to learn, to grow and to succeed. Raising Peaceable Powerful Children is equally concerned with helping its readers really see, appreciate and understand children. It is supportive of parents and teachers as it suggests how to avoid conflict, tension, and unclear communication, and helps them devise their own effective techniques. It provides strategies for the myriad difficulties that overwhelm parents--particularly working and/or single parents--as they do their best to be successful, confident guardians and raisers of the next generation. Raising Peaceable Powerful Children is a concise, friendly companion to caregivers, with countless memorable examples of situations young people face. Most of the vignettes have happened in the author's life, and their dramatic impact is clear. Our work in raising peaceable, powerful adults is hard, but we can accomplish it with Barbara Hill Steinau's help. Some parents are raising such children, and they--and their children--are impressive. Imagine what strong, glad-to-be-with adults such young people will become!
