Don't Let your Kids Be NormalBook - 2010
In the midst of our planetary woes, Dr. Gerry Fewster offers a timely reminder that every child has the inherent potential to reach beyond the status quo and create a future of meaning and purpose. Adults who recognize this potential can change the course of human destiny through their relationships with children - one child at a time. To this end, Fewster urges us to reconsider our most basic beliefs and radically revise our parenting and professional practices. If we continue to call upon the experts and pharmaceutical companies to bring our kids into line, that inherent potential may never be expressed. We do have options. Unlike most parenting and professional manuals, this book makes no attempt to diminish the magnitude of our task by trotting out more mindless prescriptions for perennial problems. With examples drawn from his own personal and professional experiences, Fewster invites the thoughtful reader to consider a unique range of possibilities that transform prescriptive parenting into a conscious and co-creative enterprise. It's time to drop the old cliché about children being our future, we are their future and they need us more than ever before.
