Reviews - What do our customers think?
Insightful, but needs development  May 27, 2007
This book holds many nuggets of wisdom that are worth pondering and finding ways to implement. However, it is poorly organized and often stops short of drawing actual conclusions and suggesting practices. At times it feels more like it should be a daily calendar of child rearing tips rather than a cohesive argument with guidance for implementation. Contrary to its own assertions, the book heavily renounces current systems without proposing wide ranging alternatives. It is difficult to translate a holistic tribal approach in which an entire community is dedicated to the education of youth into our current day systems. Are we to see our classroom or community center as a microcosm in which to implement these theories? But we only have access to the children for a small percentage of their weekly hours. Are we to build a commune, escaping the current system entirely and rebuild from the ground up? The implications of this book need to be drawn out further to include new organizational structures and policy suggestions that would fit our modern, urbanized world.
I had my doubts...  Jan 9, 2007
I just finished reading Reclaiming Youth at Risk. I had my doubts at first. It uses Native American child-raising philosophy in helping create redeeming environments for our youth today. It has caused me to have a much deeper respect for the native american people as well.

A quote from poet Edwin Markham:

He drew a circle to shut me out.
Heretic, rebel a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win.
We drew a circle that took him in.

I recommend this to parents, teachers, and leaders everywhere.
Rethinking Youth and Relationships  Jan 6, 2007
This is a great tool for people working with youth. It is a simply written book that avoids any of the modern jargon in this area; it also deals directly with the issues facing adults and youths and their involvement with each other. It attempts to redirect our way of thinking about troubled young people and works on showing a way to restore their relationships with themselves, each other, adults and the 'real' world. This book isn't bogged down in goobledygook and aims to show a way to create restorative relationship practices and includes much well worn wisdom.
Thanks for an AWESOME BOOK! PERFECT CONDITION! Great Service. Fast Shipping! Thanks so much. Jessica
Promoting a reclaiming environment.  Oct 5, 2001
This book is wonderful in guiding teachers and administrators in developing an atmosphere that promotes the positive development of all children. After a large section devoted to describing the wrong-doings of Americans and the decay of our value system (at times a little extreme,) the latter part of the book gives great strategies for the development of positive classroom management and a "reclaiming environment." Worth a read.
