They're More Than Kids, They're Human Beings

Raise your child to be an individual.  But not a jerk. 

Compassionate, but not wishy-washy.  Strong, but sensitive. 

See, we get plenty of advice on parenting that doesn't quite add up. 

Ultimately, what we're doing is Raising Human Beings, which happens to be the title of child psychologist Ross Greene's new book.  His approach is all about collaborating with children, while maintaining a solid parent-child relationship.  He shares his approach in this interview.
