All Parents Should Read…

February 12, 2010

I know that’s a bold claim, but I stand by it.

Immense market forces are at work trying to make children want more stuff. How do we help them resist? How can we introduce kids to the power of generosity?

Resistance is Futile? is a new guide from Stewardship. It’s concise, measured and practical, and best of all it doesn’t give up hope. There are some provocative and helpful suggestions about things like TV, family rituals and pocket money. 

As the guide points out ‘you can’t teach disbelief to a child, only wonderful stories’. It’s no good just railing at consumerism – we have to tell (and live) a better story.

Read Resistance is Futile? here. Or download other resources on the Stewardship website.
