Trust Kids!: Stories on Youth Autonomy and Confronting Adult Supremacy

by Carla Joy Bergman Editor and Matt Hern Foreword

Trust Kids! is a collection of essays that challenge traditional ideas about parenting and child-rearing. Featuring contributions from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, you'll gain a fresh and inspiring vision of how children can be included, loved, and cared for in a more egalitarian way. Take the hierarchy out of parenting, and replace those hoary power structures with youth autonomy and questions about unmitigated adult supremacy. We teach by doing, and by modelling a positive example of consent and autonomy, you'll improve the relationships formed by children while they're young and build good habits for them as they grow up.
