Parenting for Peace: Raising the Next Generation of Peacemakers

Front Cover
Sentient Publications, 2012 - Family & Relationships - 443 pages
If we really want to change the world, let's raise a generation hardwired for peace and innovation. Marcy Axness details a unique seven-step, seven-principle matrix for helping children achieve self-regulation, self-reflection, trust, and empathy. These qualities are the result of dynamic interactions between genetics and environment, beginning before the child is even born: foundations for this level of health begin forming during the prenatal period, and some aspects of optimal development are influenced as early as conception.
