"We cannot pretend to work for the best interests of children while ignoring the needs of their parents." Joyce L. Frett
"Eminent theorist John Burton (1992) asserts: "Empirical evidence suggests, in short, that aggression is not used for its own sake. It is not part of human nature, as has been assumed all along. Indeed we perceive the possibility that violence exists not as the preferred means by which to remedy unacceptable conditions, but as the only available option within social institutions and frameworks that are irredeemably based on power".
"Viewing conflict as
an agent for change and using non-violent intervention involves paradigm shifts;
this includes our ideology, beliefs, attitudes, ethics, values and morals. Adults
must take the responsibility for making peace by creating communities that value
and promote equality, and function to preserve the innately peaceful and loving
nature of all children. Through education and example, we can foster in children
the skills and attitudes that will empower them to approach problems confidently,
collaboratively and constructively, and to learn and live together compassionately."
