If your child is a toddler or above, discover easy ways to raise them more greenly and naturally.
In this guide, the author of the popular Green Matters series outlines some of the most important choices you will make with regard to raising your child in a more environmentally friendly manner. These choices will range from breastfeeding and the all-key decisions as to when to wean and the issue of disposable versus cloth diapers versus ‘elimination communication’ (E.C.), and show you how to raise a happy and healthy baby in a greener way.
Discover how to make your own healthy baby products, potty train your child the natural way, and see how a green lifestyle has far wider-reaching implications than simply how much you recycle and whether or not you drive a hybrid car.
A more holistic and integrated green lifestyle will also encompass how you discipline and school your child, where you go on vacation, and the best ways to help your child develop a healthy respect for nature. You will also learn how to get your toddlers, tweens and teens actively involved in green issues, so that you can have a greener family starting today.
Mothers have the most power when it comes to shopping, spending and saving. Going green can not only save the planet, but save you money too. If you are interested in going more green in your family, now is the time to make the most of your budget and efforts and learn more today about your choices as a green mother.
