Fred Rogers was one of the most radical pacifists of contemporary history. We do not usually think of him as radical, partly because he wore colorful, soft sweaters made by his mother. Nor do we usually imagine him as a pacifist; that adjective seems way too political to describe the host of a children's program known for its focus on feelings. We have restricted Fred Rogers to the realm of entertainment, children, and feelings, and we've ripped him out of his political and religious context. Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister, and although he rarely shared his religious convictions on his program, he fervently believed in a God who accepts us as we are and who desires a world marked by peace and wholeness. With this progressive spirituality as his inspiration, Rogers used his children's program as a platform for sharing countercultural beliefs about caring nonviolently for one another, animals, and the earth. To critics who dared call him "namby-pamby," Rogers said, "Only people who take the time to see our work can begin to understand the depth of it." This is the invitation of Peaceful Neighbor, to see and understand Rogers's convictions and their expression through his program. Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, it turns out, is far from sappy, sentimental, and shallow; it's a sharp political response to a civil and political society poised to kill.

During its 33-season run, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood (1968–2001) left an indelible mark on millions of children and their caregivers. Perhaps no series in the history of children’s television has done more to develop the identity and ethics of the child. More than a decade after Fred Rogers’ death, he continues to attract an audience online. Yet despite the show’s lasting impact it has been largely ignored by scholars. This collection of new essays focuses on Rogers’ contributions to children’s lives, to the media and to American culture at large. The contributors discuss his stance on the individual and the perception of self, his ideas about meaningful participation in a community and his use of television. Clearly, Mr. Rogers’ ideas still strongly resonate.

Affirmative Discipline is nonfiction aimed at parents and other teachers who support children’s learning while they affirm children’s overall development. In only eight short chapters, this book defines concepts of discipline, explores various discipline methods, recommends seven nonintrusive strategies, and explains how six intrusive strategies could be potentially affirmative. Both earlier and later theories of human development are delineated so adults can respect children's nature while steering their behavior in healthy ways. The seventh chapter emphasizes children’s individuality, and the final chapter reminds all adults to celebrate the miracle of childhood. With extensive references to behavioral scientists and the literature on development and discipline, this concise volume ties research to reality.
