The Nazis were beaten and left to cry as children

"Parenting for a Peaceful World" by Robin Grille is a book I am currently reading. So far it has changed my world and I am not even half way through! It could alternatively be called "A Psychohistorical Account of Child Rearing", and it provides clear evidence of how parenting children in a gentle and peaceful way, leads to a peaceful society. I would urge every parent, and indeed every member of society to read this book. If I had the money I would buy a copy for every politician and policy maker! Buy, borrow, beg or steal (perhaps not steal!) this book!! It is deeply moving and incredibly well researched.
