Dr. Farson was my boss, and friend. I began working at his Western Behavioral Sciences Institute (WBSI) at age 43 and was an assistant (using my middle name Andrea in case anyone who worked there goes "Uh, who the hell is Tara?" ). Later I helped draft two other books and ultimately a researcher. He was my friend, but his works reflected his study of the paradoxical and, as he himself said, the absurd. To me he was ahead of his time. Children's rights was a firm belief, not just a book. He had written it before I came to WBSI.

I just had to verify that I was over thirteen to review this book because we live in an age apartheid society. The only thing making it less pernicious than the racial apartheid of Israel or the former South Africa or the gender apartheid of Saudi Arabia or Yemen is that our underclass is allowed to outgrow their apartheid status. Richard Farson's "Birthrights" was the first book on youth liberation I ever read. This book convinced me that I am not crazy; that our way of relating to young people as a society is oppressive and deeply flawed. Richard Farson's name is embedded on my heart forever as a radical youth liberation activist. Without this book I would not be the person I am today. Reading it, I thought for the first time "I am not crazy." And that counts for something more precious than gold.

Radical and insightful. A must-read for anyone who works with children or professes to care about children and society.

The author thinks children should even have the rights to have sex with anyone they want--adults? This was a horrid work.

One of the other reviewers accused Farson of promoting the legalization of child molestation. This reader did not get the point at all and is misrepresenting Farson. Do not take that reviewer to have read the chapter and understood it thoroughly!

He supports the idea that children should be treated in such a way that they understand their rights and so will know that they can say NO!!! to an adult that approaches them and if they are abused to report. Most children are raised in such a way so as to think that if you're older you should be obeyed. This is the most dangerous belief that we have put into the minds of children.

He does believe that children should be given access to more information about sex, so that they can develop their own attitudes when it comes to sex, instead of it being communicated that it is an "adult thing", which I thought growing up. It is my conviction that much of my interest in sexual things while growing up was rooted in the fact that it was a "secret, adult thing". Farson is contributing much insights to how we view children and how we view sex in this book.

Guaranteed to get you thinking with ideas that have never occurred to you before. I wish there were more people who could wrap their mind around the idea of equal rights for children.

This book has allready inspired thirty years of activism.
From the Ann Arbour Youth Liberation Front in the 70s, to ASFAR in the mid 90's to the National Youth Rights Association today- they all read Farson.
Second only to the ASFAR decleration of principles in historical signifigance- this book is one of the most important documents in the Youth Rights movement.
