Let’s Decide Together!
Practicing Sociocracy with Children
By Hope Wilder
Sociocracy can provide a useful framework for making decisions together with children.
Decision making usually occurs by adults for children, leading to an authoritarian dynamic and conflict. As a result, adults find themselves fighting about chores, struggling to understand a behavior, or trying to manage a rowdy and disruptive classroom.
Instead, we can teach our children and students to use sociocracy, allowing them to voice what they need and make decisions as a group.
Readers can use this book to make more values-aligned, egalitarian, and inclusive decisions together with children in the home, at school, in community, neighborhood groups, or in any group where adults and children are empowered to decide together.
