intelligent disobedience to child safety and development
Ira Chaleff giving keynote address to 500 teachers from 180 schools and 24 Asian countries on the application of ID to child safety and development at Asia-Pacific International Schools Conference – December 2016, Hong-Kong.
I am very pleased that the international education community has so quickly understood the value of Intelligent Disobedience to healthy childhood development. They have taken the lead on using the BlinkThinkChoiceVoice approach to giving young children practice in distinguishing between appropriate and inappropriate orders from an authority figure and how to say” no” to inappropriate orders or pressure. They recognize this as an important adjunct to other measures for protecting children from sexual abuse and, on a longer time frame, to developing independence of thinking and action.
