The growing segment of environmentally-conscious adults will welcome a green guide to parenting. Divided into ten chapters representing the many different decisionmaking realms faced by parents of young children today, this book offers practical advice, authoritative rationales, and imaginative ideas. It addresses head-on the most urgent parenting questions in the media today - lead in toys, vaccination, plastic bottles and food containers, vitamins and dietary supplements, fats and carbohydrates in snacks, food allergies, communicative diseases in school settings, whether and when to use antibiotics. At every turn, it explains the issue and helps parents make decisions that benefit their families and the environment. In addition to the sensible, well-organised main text of this book, it also features marginal sidebars including 'The Facts' - statistical evidence highlighting how important green lifestyles are to our world and our children; 'Eco-Tips' - quick hits on easy ways to go a little more green in childcare practices; 'Green Dictionary' - definitions and clarifications of technical terminology and concepts important to green lifestyle decisionmaking; 'Kitchen Table Tales' - firsthand stories from mothers and fathers on their solutions to childraising challenges; and, 'Take Action' - a checklist summarising every chapter and its action points.
