I was thinking about how we started on this journey and the writers who inspired us. I guess the big one has to be John Holt (I will write A LOT more about him in the future) followed by Alfie Kohn's ideas of unconditional parenting and education without punishments and rewards. We also appreciate the work of Ken Robinson, Jan Fortune-Wood and John Taylor Gatto but ultimately it was my experience of teaching English as a foreign language for 10 years that helped me see what DIDN'T work and that coercion does not result in a child learning from the heart. I will cover all these authors separately as well as sharing some of the theories I have encountered while studying Psychology.
