I particularly like the part that concerns  to train for positive assertion versus constant compliance. The compliance to please teachers versus the ownership of learning all  to please parents often provides a conflict for me. 

Jenn Alevy's comment, January 13, 2014 3:44 AM
The only concern I have and I have not read the book, is that her assertions seem to be feeding into the culture of fear and would like to see the stats she refers to when she says youth crime is on the rise. And whose morals is she talking about? People come from a variety of countries and cultures, I hope she does not assume we are all on the same page about 'moral' issues, she may be more conservative while others are more liberal in their beliefs.

This is an important article. Some teachers find themselves in situations where they are teaching ethical behaviour to children. This is worth a read.

The proof is in the reading.  And making it a daily practice.

This is so important. It isn't just important for mothers to read aloud. It is very important that fathers take a turn too.

We know this, but it bears repeating, and repeating and repeating!!!!
