S1C1: The Inauthenticity and Immorality of Coercion
In this episode, and the next 12 or so episodes that follow, I’ll be reading chapters from my short book, Without a Fight: Ending the Struggle for Power and Leading Children Authentically. The goal is to lay the foundational principles for all of the future work that we do together.
This episode is about the inauthenticity and immorality of coercion-based strategies.

Your message is so needed and so well- researched and backed by sound logic. I want to partake of your wisdom and send it along. But I have a dilemma. May I make a strong request? Please, please, please do not allow the ever-increasing use of the “F” word into your podcast. Please? This is a violent word. It does damage to the message you are trying to give. Please refer to the work of Masaru Emoto and the power of words to organize or disorganize, or to put it another way, to devolve something or help it to evolve. Language is so important in furthering a noble cause. You obviously have a good command of the English language. Please do not let this deterioration to enter into your work.
Thanks for your comments Joy. I speak on my podcast the way I speak in real life. I choose not to edit my personality. In fact, I’m often turned off by adults who act like certain words degrade a message or reflect poorly on an individual. I could understand if I was profanely cussing in every other sentence, but the rare use of these words isn’t problematic for me or most other adults.
