and Other Renegade Rules for Raising Competent and Compassionate Kids
Heather Shumaker

This book's title might surprise, even startle, many parents and caregivers. If you are one of these people, please read on, for the support and guidance this book provides could be liberating, even life-changing for you and your children. What a relief.

Finally, someone is speaking out again for instinct and common sense in parenting and caring for toddlers and preschoolers. Sadly, letting ''kids be kids'' is considered ''renegade'' in today's highly structured, pressured world, where preschoolers are forced to sit at desks, read, write, even have homework, and an ''adult lens'' asks them to behave beyond their natural stage of development and understanding. Free play and unstructured time, even though proven to provide children with all they need in the early years, is rarely allowed today.

Enter the Renegade Rules: It's OK if It's Not Hurting People or Property; Let Kids Hit and Kick; It's OK Not to Share; Bombs, Guns and Bad Guys Allowed; Paint Off the Paper; Stop Saying ''Good Job''; Kids Don't Have to Say Sorry; Let Your Kid Swear; Love Your Kid's Lies; Sex Ed Starts in Pre-school. Wow.

Shumaker faces these tough topics head on and does a grand job. Her wise and informative exploration of these rules, backed up by child psychologists, brain research, and educators, is a true gift. In essence, this is a gift of freedom and the chance to relax and enjoy life more with your little ones -- trusting they will turn out more than fine!
