learning non-aggression • New York • Published In 1978 • Pages: 94-143
By: Dentan, Robert Knox.
AbstractThis source focuses on describing the ways in which the Semai enculturate their children to be non-violent. As the author views the problem of enculturation into non-violence, the process begins before the child's birth. Thus, the author examines concepts and practices related to pregnancy, childbirth, and infant and childhood training. In the examination of childhood training the author discusses, among other things, the teaching of fear and caution and the treatment of aggression in children.
