A Path of Their Own free pdf This book introduces the groundbreaking concept of "radical respect" as the cornerstone of compassionate parenting and the foundation for an enriched alternative education. When children are deeply respected seen as they are, and not as we might wish them to be they flourish, both emotionally and intellectually. Respectful parenting allows children to trust their own instincts and to pursue their individual passions and curiosities, so that they grow up to be creative, resilient and inner-directed adults who stay open and engaged with the world throughout their lives. Sharing stories from her own experience, author Lael Whitehead, former editor of Home Education News magazine in Vancouver, describes how she took her children out of school and allowed them to learn from life in a natural, self-directed way, without curriculum, grades, discipline or rewards. She candidly shares their journey, thoughts and feelings along the way.
