  • Punished by Rewards by Alfie Kohn
    Punished by Rewards (English, Paperback)

    The basic strategy we use for raising children, teaching students, and managing workers can be summarized in six words: Do this and you'll get that. We dangle goodies (from candy bars to sales commissions) in front of people in much the same way we train the family pet. Drawing on a wealth of psychological research, Alfie Kohn points the way to a more successful strategy based on working with people instead of doing things to them. "Do rewards motivate people?" asks Kohn. "Yes. They motivate people to get rewards." Seasoned with humor and familiar examples, Punished By Rewards presents an argument unsettling to hear but impossible to dismiss.

  • Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn

    Most parenting guides begin with the question "How can we get kids to do what they're told?" and then proceed to offer various techniques for controlling them.

What follows from that question are ideas for working with children rather than doing things to them.
