In clear and compelling
language, Australian psychologist Robin Grille takes on the Herculean task of
exploring the childhood origins of human action and choice, from its most violent to
its most humane, for individuals as well as for families and countries, and for the
most simple to the most complex behavior - and against all odds, succeeds. This is the
book that could save the world, if we can only pay attention.
An essential companion for the "natural parent", the
newly-published Parenting for a Peaceful World is a fascinating look at how
child-rearing customs have shaped societies and major world events. It reveals how
children adapt to different parenting styles and describes how these early experiences
underpin the adults they become. This wide-ranging book draws on revolutionary new
research to argue that the safeguarding of children's emotional development is the key
to creating a more peaceful and harmonious world.
