A thought-provoking booklet which questions our attitudes to violence and considers how these affect the education and nurturing of children.
Saying no to violence is published by the Peace Pledge Union and casts a critical look at the way children are taught “to accept violence as natural and inevitable”. It suggests alternative strategies for bringing up children not only to act nonviolently but think nonviolently. It has a wealth of suggestions for parents and teachers of young children including curriculum-based lesson plans. The influence of toys, advertising and television programmes which condone violence are also explored.
