Raising a Humane Child in Challenging Times
Zoe Weil

Have you ever wished for one book that combines all the ways we need to parent our children today to help them be humane, loving, and kind human beings, willing to be of service to the world? Well, Zoe Weil has fulfilled your wish. Her book is a comprehensive and excellent guide for raising children who are compassionate and conscious of "other" -- in a time when media, materialism, apathy, and "Me" values threaten to shape and distort our children's minds and hearts, despite our best efforts to teach them otherwise.

Weil, a parent herself, is Cofounder and President of the International Institute for Humane Education. In her years of work, she has gathered many ways to help parents become better role models for their children, make more positive life choices themselves, and become more informed about political and environmental issues that impact us all. She teaches by example, living this kind of life herself. Her book is full of very useful facts and figures -- like where our food, clothes, and goods come from, and the effects our rampant consumerism has on the rest of the world; plus a wonderful list of resources to further that education with our children.

I love her three R's of Reverence, Respect, and Responsibility, and the way she breaks down her information into early, middle and adolescent years, so parents can really understand how to work in age-appropriate ways with their children. She shares concrete examples and stories of individuals and families who have changed their lifestyles and embraced a much more aware and humane way of being present on the planet. This is an inspiring and infinitely practical guide. I highly recommend it to all.
