Despite a perfect storm of hostile forces that threaten to deny children a healthy, happy childhood, courageous parents and teachers can turn the tide. Yes, we can reclaim childhood, says Johann Christoph Arnold, whose books have helped more than a million readers through the challenges of education and family life. In Their Name is Today, he highlights drastic changes in the way our society treats children. But he also brings together the voices of dedicated parents and educators who are finding creative ways to give children the time and space they need to grow. Cutting through the noise of conflicting opinions, Arnold takes us to the heart of education and parenting by defending every child’s right to the joy and wonder of childhood.
What a great book. It keeps things very real, but also provides REAL hope in the futures that we can provide our children, and in the moments now that we have with our children. There is so much sound advice in this book – advice that I will take to heart and apply to my own children.
The author’s story about Berto the monkey and the family having to leave him behind touched me and taught me a great lesson – and that’s how the entire book is written. Personal stories, personal experiences, whether his own or those he knows, intertwined with messages intended to improve our lives.
This is a book I’ll refer back to often. I’m so glad I had the chance to read it!
