Parenting is one of the greatest challenges we face. Once we’re parents, we’re always looking for parenting tips and parenting advice, trying to answer the question, “How can I be a better mother, a better father?”
Raising Children on Planet Earth is a manual for parents of children up to elementary school age, based on my own experience as a teacher of young children in school and as parent. If you have ever wondered how teachers can handle a classroom with thirty or more feisty kindergarteners, actually teach them something, and send them away happy, take a look at this book.
I have taught every level from kindergarten to college in the United States and Latin America, always approaching my work from a point of view of love and respect for my students, without repression or power plays.
Whether you’re part of a couple or single parenting, raising your own children or step parenting, or even if you’re a foster parent, this manual will help you take a strategic look at your parenting skills and improve them in a loving and compassionate way.
In Raising Children on Planet Earth, you will discover:
