A comprehensive guide to bringing up your child in a 'green' and ethically aware manner - a parenting approach increasingly important for many families
Is this the right book for me?
Be a Greener Parent: Teach Yourself gives a parent all the information they need to make informed choices about how to bring up their child in an ethical, environmentally conscious manner. It goes beyond the immediate concerns of washable vs. disposable nappies to provide an all-round approach to a balanced, ethical family and domestic life.
It covers everything from pregnancy through childbirth and beyond, and features plenty of advice on how to make ethically informed choices about education, travel, and even issues such as how much clothing and how many toys does your child really need.
The approach is centred firmly on a realistic vision of ethical parenting, and offers parents a system whereby they can either make wholly 'green' choices, or can opt for a more convenient and practical approach with a minimum of effort. These unique 'Green Box Guides' in addition to the substantial resources and bibliography featured make this a comprehensive yet accessible handbook for all those who want to take a more ethically aware approach to their family.
