It's OK Not To Share and Other Renegade Rules for Raising Competent and Compassionate Kids
It’s OK Not to Share by Heather Shumaker talks about controversial childhood subjects, like sharing, saying sorry, traditional gender roles, discussing genitals and sex ed, even simple playground ideas that can be controversial, like playing with sticks or climbing up the slide.
In this inspiring and enlightening book, Heather Shumaker describes her quest to nail down “the rules” to raising smart, sensitive, and self-sufficient kids.
Here are a few of the rules:
• It’s OK if it’s not hurting people or property. • Bombs, guns, and bad guys are allowed. • Boys can wear tutus. • Pictures don’t have to be pretty. • Paint off the paper! • Sex ed starts in preschool. • Kids don’t have to say “Sorry.” • Love your kid’s lies.
