      Children are kept in the walled garden of childhood, outside the world of human experience, for longer periods than ever before in human history. But for many children and parents, the walled garden of childhood is more like a prison, where authorities compel and limit personal actions. What if children had the right to do, in general, what any adult may legally do? I've read a few of John Holt's books (How Children Fail (Classics in Child Development), How Children Learn (Classics in Child Development), The Underachieving School), and to my mind, Escape from Childhood is the most philosophically 'meaty' of them.

I've read a few of John Holt's books (How Children Fail (Classics in Child Development),How Children Learn (Classics in Child Development),The Underachieving School), and to my mind, Escape from Childhood is the most philosophically 'meaty' of them.

Here, John Holt provides a fairly developed (and he admits where it is not) vision of what children's rights should be in a free society/5(20). Escape From Childhood is Holt’s attempt to go beyond school reforms to show ways that society as a whole can help children learn and grow into responsible adults.

It examines our peculiar institution of childhood, one that systematically denies young people responsible choices. Escape exposes a world tantamount to a prison camp, created by religious fanatics who, in the name of God, deprive their followers the right to make choices, force women to be totally subservient to men, and brainwash children in church-run schools.

Against this background, Carolyn Jessop’s flight takes on an extraordinary, inspiring power/5(K). Escape From Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children Holt's eloquent, insightful, and highly controversial book about how we can gradually let children decide what constitutional rights they wish to exercise in their lives, such as the right to think and learn about topics they are interested in, choosing their own guardians, and voting.

A childhood without boundaries is delicious to contemplate but terrifying to actually confront, which is why it’s the conceit of so many children’s stories and the great theme of fairy tales.

This is a reprint of John Holt's controversial book about the rights of children and how adults and children can live and learn together more enjoyably and transparently by rethinking their relationships.

Escape from Saigon allows readers to experience Long's struggle to survive in war-torn Vietnam, his dramatic escape to America as part of "Operation Babylift" during the last chaotic days before the fall of Saigon, and his life in the United States as "Matt," part of a loving Ohio family.

Finally, as a young doctor, he journeys back to Vietnam /5(30). Escape From Childhood, though, is by far the best of his writings I've read. I got through it in about a day and passed it a friend who was equally enthused. In it, Holt makes some deep points about the unhealthy ways in which we treat children--as "pets", as helpless victims-in-waiting, etc.- /5(5).

Escape from Childhood: The Needs and Rights of Children is Holt's most controversial book on a difficult subject. To get a sense of Holt's passion and ideas, here are two popular articles he wrote ("Free the Children; They Need Room to Grow" and "The Cuteness Syndrome, Kitchie-Kitchie Koo, and Other Problems") based on Escape From Childhood.

Free the Children; They Need Room to Grow. By John Holt. This article was written soon after Escape From Childhood was published. It originally appeared in Psychology Today, October, I have come to feel that the fact of being a “child,” of being wholly subservient and dependent, of being seen by older people as a mixture of expensive nuisance, slave and superpet, sooner or later.
