Beyond Good Parenting is a warm and delightful eye-opener of a book! Marty Dutcher writes from his own experience in parenting as well as a lifetime career of working with children and parents – even grandparents. His carefully constructed concepts and techniques can help create a new respect and understanding for how children learn, how they discover their own interests and what helps them absorb new information about their world. Dutcher’s method is to approach children with an attitude of “Let’s discover together what works – and what doesn’t work - for each of us in how we live in this world.” Beyond the right and wrong, beyond the good and bad, this underlying attitude, if passed on to kids by parents, teachers, and others, can help them form their own views as they learn in collaboration with peers and adults while understanding and respecting the necessity of parental accountability (i.e. who is in charge!). Dutcher lays a solid groundwork of the science behind these powerful views of behavior and learning, and his love and respect for parents as well as their children shines through it all.
