    A really great book. I'm so glad that I read it as part of my graduate program. A really great book. I'm so glad that I read it as part of my graduate program.

    Some of his descriptions of dysfunctional children reminded me of me or members of my family. That said this work seems largely based on anecdote and assertion. Even when a conclusion is based on the self assessment or a slip of the tongue from a subject, how do we know that this was explanatory, and not just some self justification? If you have experience with someone who lies, you'll recognize that they often seem as self deluded as they attempt to influence those around them.

If you have experience with someone who lies, you'll recognize that they often seem as self deluded as they attempt to influence those around them. On a lesser scale, there is interesting research which speaks to our own self delusion. He did makes points I tend to agree with, such as being wary of running a classroom as a constant contest for first place, as there can only be one best student, and my own experience as student, and later an educator speaks to those who know they will never be first so won't engage. I wasn't clear if the author had a good enough understanding of "organic issues" to be able to separate lazy from those with processing issues or other cognitive deficits. I see Adlering ideas in my own teacher education, and I'm thinking I needed to challenge those assumptions. The best criticism of the work seems to be a lack of the ability to falsify the claims. Each claim seems to have an out, so it's not predictive to say "pampering" (whatever that really means, or can it even be defined with any precision?) will cause this or that issue. I do believe it important for a teacher to understand a student. I also question the assertion that personality is in any way unitary or consistent. It seems the very most human of qualities is our inconsistencies. How we can know how to do something, be committed, and still not do it, despite talk therapy, and all kinds of things is what makes the study of the mind interesting.

    I am an educator myself, teaching kids from 6 months old to 5 years old. Reading this book makes me rethink my method of teaching. A way to encourage and motivate children to learn without giving praises or having a reward system is a new idea for me. This book had explained with details for the reason of not using reinforcements and I’m definitely persuaded by it, given its ideology. However, I will have to refer to more books on Alder’s or others who applied Individual Psychology for applying I am an educator myself, teaching kids from 6 months old to 5 years old.

However, I will have to refer to more books on Alder’s or others who applied Individual Psychology for applying this into practices. It almost seems impossible not to praise children in classes. Even clapping for them? I hope I did not misinterpret what’s been said in this book. This book is definitely for those who are a keen educator or want to be good parents after all. Thought-provoking for sure.

    "... It must regard these particular acts, as we have said, not as single notes but in the context of the whole melody--the unity of personality." Education is a process of transformation. Not the transformation of objective facts themselves, but rather the subject views on the objective facts. This reminds me of Albert Ellis' ABC model: Activating event -- Belief -- Consequences. The Belief, is what we can change. "... It must regard these particular acts, as we have said, not as single notes but in the context of the whole melody--the unity of personality."

    Çok faydalı bir kitap olduğunu düşünüyorum. Özellikle Alfred Adler'in düşüncelerini okumak çok zevkli. Fakat kitap alışkın olmadığım tarzda yazılmış olduğu için ilk başlarda okumakta zorlandım. Çocuklarla ilgili bir şeyler öğrenmek isteyen anne babalar ve öğretmen adayları faydalı bulacaktır. Çok faydalı bir kitap olduğunu düşünüyorum.
