Although the ideas of the book are really good, the absolutely condescending and judgy tone of the author are what causes to many people to think that respectful parenting is just for perfect people. The worst was his last chapter about how culture, race and economic status intersect in parenting styles. His recognition of his privilege unfortunately is not enough for him to grant the same empathy an compassion he advocates for children to parents who are carrying centuries of colonial trauma and who go about keeping their children safe in less than optimal ways. I still appreciate a lot of the research in the book and the content is really good if you can tolerate an arrogant white dude inescapable sense of moral superiority.
