internet search, I checked the book out of the library on Saturday
and am in the process of reading it.
I'm 64. My initial take on the book is to wonder whether the children
have really changed or whether a sufficient number of adults have
awakened (or been educated) to "see" realities in our children that
have always been there. There are many factors at work here, not the
least of which is less tolerance for "children should be seen and not
heard" that was so prevalent when I was growing up.
Once we begin to listen to each other, including our children, we
become amazed at the previously unseen and unknown wisdom that is all
around us. "Out of the mouths of babes. . . ," etc.
As to the phenomenon just now being seen by people who have been
teaching or in day care for 25-30 years -- I would certainly hope
that anyone in these fields for this length of time has changed at
least some of their teaching/caring behavior to incorporate changing
wisdom, thus changing what they see and the behavior they elicit in
the children under their care.
