With the combination of Laura’s wisdom on child development and parenting she adds the wisdom of Native Americans to truly honor children as they grow and develop.

  1. I must say that I very rarely listen to radio shows, but when I saw the topic, I just had to listen in! Having always been fascinated and inspired by the Native American way of life, I wholeheartedly agree that families can really benefit from learning more about it, especially those who are trying to go green and save our planet.

    This quote from the Great Law of the Iroquois Confederacy, that the company Seventh Generation puts on all of it products, says a lot about Native American philosophy and how all living things truly are connected:

    “In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”

    I hadn’t heard of this particular parenting book, but I’m definitely going to add it to my reading list. Thank you so much for sharing this interview and inspiring us today!

    • Hi Dawn, Thanks so much for listening to the show. I love the quote you have shared here. There is much wisdom to learn from the Native Americans about family living. Be sure and read the book “Keepers of the Children.” I think you will find it very inspiring. Peace to you and yours, Donna
