Earthcare for Children cover

Earthcare for Children emphasizes the spiritual basis of environmental awareness and action in a series of lessons for use in the religious education of children from kindergarten through sixth grade. Over one hundred activities are included along with suggestions of quotations, Bible passages, stories, and songs to enhance each of the thirteen chapters.
Developed by members of Palo Alto Friends Meeting for use in Friends Meetings and Churches and Quaker Schools, the lessons are easily adaptable for use by other denominations that recognize a spiritual basis for environmental concerns. Many of the individual activities could also be modified for public school classrooms and outdoor education programs.

Giving Your Child the Gift of Inner Discipline

Barbara Coloroso presents a spectrum of discipline styles ranging from brickwall families [parents determine all rules and punishments -- or expectations and consequences] to jellyfish families [parents don't know how to provide consistant guidance -- or are unable to.] Between these lie backbone families whose principles and process help children develop a personal guide to right and wrong. By encouraging kids to make decisions, take responsibility for their actions, take reasonable risks, and learn from their mistakes, Barbara Coloroso's approach shows how parents can teach their children inner discipline.
Of all the parenting books we have carried in our stores, Kids Are Worth It is the most consistant with our values and practices as Quaker parents.
