Feel-Bad Education – Alfie Kohn On What Schools Do Wrong

Unconditional Love

  • Kohn sites research that supports the idea that unconditional acceptance by teachers and parents is much more effective than a positive and negative conditional approach, which engenders dislike in children. Unconditional acceptance involves the concept of “autonomy support,” which includes explaining reasons for requests, maximizing opportunities for the child to participate in making decisions, being encouraging without manipulating, and actively imagining how things look from the child’s point of view.
