Based on the ideas of Marshall Rosenberg and Alfie Kohn, Growing up in Trust looks at the impact of reward and punishment on children and on the relationship between children and their parents, teachers and other grown-ups around them.
The book clearly guides the reader through the process of the shift away from a reliance on right/wrong thinking towards an approach based on trust.
It highlights our role in nurturing children’s inherent morality and fostering a sense of partnership in finding interdependent solutions, where everyone’s needs matter.
The text is littered with anecdotal examples, and each chapter contains a number of experiential exercises or thought-provoking questions.

What is Compassionate/Nonviolent Communication?
What is Violent Communication?
If “violent” means acting in ways that result in hurt or harm, then much of how we communicate - judging others, bullying, racial profiling, blaming, finger pointing, discriminating against others, speaking without listening, criticizing, name-calling, reacting when angry, using political rhetoric, being defensive or judging who’s “good/bad” or what’s “right/wrong” with people, could indeed be called 'violent communication'.
What is Nonviolent Communication?
Nonviolent Communication is the integration of 4 things:
Consciousness:a set of principles that support living a life of empathy, care, courage, and authenticity
Language: understanding how words contribute to connection or distance
Communication: knowing how to ask for what we want, how to hear others even in disagreement, and how to move toward solutions that work for all
Means of influence: sharing 'power with others' rather than using 'power over others'
Nonviolent Communication serves our desire to do three things:
1: Increase our ability to live with choice, meaning, and connection 2: Connect empathically with self and others to have more satisfying relationships 3: Sharing of resources so everyone is able to benefit
