Written by Constanze Niedermaier, 33 Family Conversations About Global Challenges helps parents have family conversations about issues that current and future generations will face and about the goals for a brighter future for all humans. No child is too young to make a difference! Why not give them that confidence early on? We owe it to our children to raise them to become global citizens who are aware of the interrelations between everything happening in the world.
“I like that this book provides parents with conversation starters about problems that are going on around the world such as topics such as gender equality, identity, homelessness, food waste and much more.”
“The topics are not light, but each chapter has articles/stories that the parents can read ahead of time to help them present the subject or can read along with their children. The book is very educational and brings to light many difficult topics to the family discussion.”
“This book is helpful to parents to talk about issues and current events. It can help families come together to make a difference in a developmentally appropriate way, depending on the age of the children.”
“I like that this is a unique book and makes it acceptable for families to talk with their children about very difficult topics.”
“This would be great for families to talk about these challenging topics that are often in the news. I think families could adapt the conversation for children as young as 5 and definitely could use to discuss with older children and teenagers.”
