Humanizing pedagsogy education means educating your children with the idea that they are human beings, not just animals, that they have value and worth.
It means that they deserve to be treated as people, not as things.
It also means that you should treat them as human beings.
You should respect them, and they should respect you.
Humans are not your friend.
You can learn about and practice kindness, empathy, and respect for humans at the same time.
And we have plenty of examples of both of these.
For example, when I was a child, my parents were both educators and they were both compassionate and generous with their time and resources.
I also remember sitting on the floor in their living room watching their children play, reading to them, or making them laugh.
I loved them dearly.
And now, I am a teacher.
I am teaching my children to treat their parents like human beings who deserve love and respect, not to just be pets, but as human being who deserve compassion and love.
