Read full description of the books:



As codirector of the Albany Free School, Chris Mercogliano has had remarkable success in helping a diverse population of youngsters find their way in the world. He regrets, however, that most kids' lives are subject to some form of control from dawn until dusk. Lamenting risk-averse parents, overstructured school days, and a lack of playtime and solitude, Mercogliano argues that we are robbing our young people of "that precious, irreplaceable period in their lives that nature has set aside for exploration and innocent discovery," leaving them ill-equipped to face adulthood. The "domestication of childhood" squeezes the adventure out of kids' lives and threatens to smother the spark that animates each child with talents, dreams, and inclinations.

There is plenty that those involved with children can do to protect their spontaneity and exuberance. We can address their desperate thirst for knowledge, give them space to learn from their mistakes, and let them explore what their place in the adult world might be.

Reviews of the In Defense of Childhood: Protecting Kids' Inner Wildness


LEON

Phone number you need to drive to protect against robots.

HENRY

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

LYDIA

An interesting book that says more than you can fit

HARRY

Perfect Design and content!

ELIZA

My life was divided into two halves: before and after reading the book!
