In this thought-provoking book, best-selling author Steven Harrison ventures far outside the box of traditional thinking about education. His radical proposal? Children naturally want to learn, he asserts, so let them direct their own education in democratic learning communities where they can interact seamlessly with their neighborhoods, their towns, and the world at large. Most learning systems apply external motivation through grades, rankings, teacher direction, and approval. The Happy Child suggests that a self-motivated child who is interdependent within a community can develop the full human potential to live a creative and fulfilling life. Harrison focuses on the integration of the whole child, the learning environment, and the non-coercive spirit of curiosity-driven education.

We discuss whole-child development, learning, and thriving through a dynamic systems theory lens that focuses on the United States and includes an analysis of historical challenges in the American public education system, including inequitable resources, opportunities, and outcomes. To transform US education systems, developmental and learning scientists, educators, policymakers, parents, and communities must apply the knowledge they have today to 1. challenge the assumptions and goals that drove the design of the current US education system, 2. articulate a revised, comprehensive definition of whole-child development, learning, and thriving that accepts rather than simplifies how human beings develop, 3. create a profound paradigm shift in how the purpose of education is described in the context of social, cultural, and political forces, including the impacts of race, privilege, and bias and 4. describe a new dynamic 'language' for measurement of both the academic competencies and the full set of 21st century skills.

If you are a parent, you know the feeling that there are some things you might have done better. If you are going to be a parent, there is the feeling of wanting to do the very best for your child that you possibly can. Parenting, A Sacred Task meets both these perspectives. Karuna Fedorschak knows what all parents know: there are no formulas for parenting that will work in every situation. Her book presents the basics that emerge in the best of parent-child relationships: including humor, respect, boundaries and physical touch. You do not have to be a super-parent to apply these basics. Karuna didn’t even know how to make a pancake when she began mothering. "The most essential ingredient of treating parenting as sacred,” she says, “is the intention to give your children the best of who you are, so that they can be the best of who they are."
