Publisher Description

Empower your kids (and yourself) to thrive in uncertain times 

Raising children in this time of social, economic and environmental collapse can be downright terrifying. If you're feeling anxious and overwhelmed by the responsibility of raising emotionally and physically healthy children in a chaotic world, you are not alone. Many parents today struggle with climate anxiety, eco-grief and concerns about economic and political stability. They worry about their children's future and wonder if there's anything they can do. Fortunately, as you'll see in the pages of this book, when you partner with your children and engage with them in the care of our world, this overwhelm eases and transforms into passionate empowered action, creativity and resilience.

In Raising Children in the Midst of Global Crisis: A Compassionate Guidebook to New Paradigm Parenting, mother and Work That Reconnects facilitator, Jo delAmor, provides a profound source of support for your parenting journey, inviting you to embrace parenting as a powerful form of activism that can contribute to the Great Turning and the healing of our world. 

New Paradigm Parenting calls us to recognize the Power Over Paradigm at the root of the many converging crises of our times (racism, ecocide, patriarchy, extractive capitalism, fascism, etc.) and to transition ourselves and our families into alignment with the ancient and enduring Thriving Life Paradigm of the Earth and the natural world. It invites us to dismantle our own conditioning and relearn the world alongside our growing children as we discover how to partner with them on behalf of life. It is a revitalizing adventure through intergenerational healing, mutual thriving, and creative problem solving that strengthens our relationships with our children by centering connection, belonging and mutual support in all our interactions. Through carefully crafted observations and simple, age-appropriate practices for both parents and children, this book offers a wealth of support for the New Paradigm Parenting journey that you'll want to return to, again and again, as your children grow.

The work of this book is not to figure out how to escape the crises of our times or how to raise perfect kids or how to save the world. It is not about "getting it right" or finding the solution. New Paradigm Parenting is about becoming deeply familiar with the reality in which we are raising our children and responding to it with creativity and resilience in service to Thriving Life.

"This book is a prayer, not a prescription. A sitting-with, a yearning-alongside. A glimpse of the possible. And it begins - as Jo imagines it does - right in the swirling mass of space that exists between us and the children the world has gifted itself through us."
