This week I had the opportunity to spend time with Dr. Marvin Marshall. He is a tremendous resource to parents and educators. I invite you to check out his amazing non-coercive but not permissive approach to raising responsible kids.
Who is Marvin Marshall? During our time together, he shared in his own words:
“I am an international speaker and author of a book entitled Parenting Without Stress: How to Raise Responsible Kids While Keeping a Life of Your Own. I wrote this book because people said would you please write a book using your totally non-coercive but not permissive approach for parents since you have one for teachers, and you are giving your book out free to any school in the United States who wants to use your approach. And that’s what I’ve done. I feel a responsibility to help parents raise responsible kids because one of the things about our current young society today is, and so many parents would agree, that the young people are not nearly as responsible as former generations are. They are tied up in themselves. They are almost narcissistic. And we need to develop a generation that will perpetuate our civil society, and that will only come about when people are responsible.”
Dr. Marshall has lots of free resources and information on his books on his website www.MarvinMarshall.com. I know it will serve you in realizing your parenting goals.
