Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Above All, Be Kind teaches parents how to raise their children to be humane in the broadest sense—to become not only more compassionate in their interactions with family and friends, but to grow up to make life choices that demonstrate respect for the environment, other species, and all people. The book includes chapters for early, middle, teenage, and young adult years, as well as activities, issue sidebars, cases, tips, and profiles.

Zoe Weil is cofounder and President of the International Institute for Humane Education. She developed the first graduate program in humane education in the U.S. and conducts frequent humane education workshops. Author of several humane education books for young people, and a parent, she lives in Maine.

Synopsis:

A unique approach to raising children to have values of kindness and compassion.

Melissa Ryan, July 28, 2008 (view all comments by Melissa Ryan)
In a world that sometimes seems to have gone completely bonkers, a book such as this gem is near priceless. With a writing style that is highly readable & easily applied to child-rearing, Zoe Weil has given excellent advice on showing the children in our lives how to be peace, be love and thus positively change the world in the most simple of ways.

I have been searching for such a book (without any religions undertones) for a couple of years. A fantastic helpmeet to this hip mama!
