Book Synopsis:

Parenting for Social Change is a powerful parenting book that is not about children, but about the harmful cultural messages adults perpetuate in their relationships with children. In this compelling call for change, Teresa Graham Brett addresses the work parents must do to free themselves, the children who share their lives, and the world from these harmful messages. Using current research, she debunks the myth that controlling children is necessary to ensure that they grow into healthy and responsible adults. She also shares her own parenting journey away from controlling and dominating children and provides strategies for letting go of harmful control. Through her experiences as a social justice educator, she demonstrates how changing our parent-child relationships plays a critical role in creating social change.

About the author:

Teresa Graham Brett, J.D., brings together her knowledge, skills, and passion as a social justice educator and leader in higher education for over 20 years with her experience as a parent in advocating for fundamental change in the adult-child relationship. Using her experience facilitating transformative learning, she is able to help others question their assumptions and see the world from a new perspective. In particular, she challenges adults to rethink their views of childhood and their resulting treatment of children from a paradigm of control and domination. Ms. Brett is sought out for speaking engagements and workshop facilitation across the United States. Her website, ParentingForSocialChange.com, is visited by parents from across the globe who value her experiences and perspectives as a parent and social justice educator.
