Cohousing seems to trigger the need to make our values about helping children explicit and founded. Here are some books that may be of use. - Any books by Dr Thomas Gordon, such as "P.E.T. "(Parent Effectiveness Training) and "Discipline that Works - Promoting Self-Discipline in Children". The ideas are helpful when a discussion gets stuck about the merits of laissez faire and directive approaches. - Gordon Lawrence's (1993) "People Types and Tiger Stripes" helps to make sure that discussions about child rearing include the consideration that there are personality differences. Great book for people who find the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator thought provoking. - Alex Chew's (1998) "A Primer on Adlerian Psychology". A thin book with great depth. Adler is a very insightful thinker about the links between behaviour, attention, power, revenge and display of inadequacy. Hans Tilstra (B.Ed., MBS)
