For more information on the theories of Taking Children Seriously
I would, in addition to the website, recommend Jan Fortune-Woods book: Winning Parent, Winning Child: Parenting So Everybody Wins
The theories of consent based parenting as delineated on the Taking Children Seriously website and in Jan's books, can at first appear quite extraordinary, even positively ridiculous! But the closer one looks at them and the more one tries to find fault with them, the more one realises just how good the theories really are and just how well they do withstand serious criticism. What is more, when really put into practice, the theories work.
