Item Description...
How can parents instill a peaceable lifestyle in their children? Do children learn more by words or by actions? How To Teach Peace To Children speaks to issues that are front and center for parents--building family relationships, teaching care for others in the neighborhood and around the world, guiding children in the way of nonviolence. Practical suggestions help families pattern their lives after Jesus' words and actions while dealing with modern stresses. Easy-to-read chapters focus on family "hot spots" like working through conflicts, sharing household tasks, adding meaning to celebrations, and encouraging healthy, nonviolent play. Resource lists introduce parents, educators, and librarians to books, videos, web sites, organizations, and ideas that promote a shalom lifestyle for families.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Idea, but Not Enough  Jan 22, 2005
A short little book, easily readable in an hour, or a little longer, if you sit and ponder the author's questions and thoughts. Anne Byler challenges us to speak and act peace in all aspects of our lives. But by peace, she doesn't just mean passivism, or sitting back with flowers in our hair. Good as the latter might be, she asks for far more. Byler speaks of Shalom, the rich Biblical word encompassing a right relationship between God and humanity, men and women, all peoples of all economic levels, and humanity and the land. It is a return to Eden. It is the Year of Jubilee. It is the message of "Why I came," that Jesus preaches in Capernaum. It is reconstructuring one's entire life to fit with the Biblical model of true Life.

Byler is a clear and concise Mennonite prophet, and one that we need. She tells us that, in order to teach Peace to our children, Peace begins with us, within us. It is telling our kids a clear theology of Peace, but also acting on it: working against the draft and war; working to help the poor; working against sexism and racism; working to forgive those who hurt us; working to remove violent anger from our lives; and treating all people with respect. Then raise your kids in this kind of environment. Find imaginative ways to steer them away from playing with guns or violent videogames. Help them learn how to respond to the culture that constantly encourages us to choose the easy path of retribution. Through all this Byler provides numerous print, video, and net resources to turn to in order to raise your kids in the path of Peace.

But there could be a lot more. It is perhaps that so much is crammed into a paltry 72 pages that nothing is covered in depth. I wanted more stories, and more exacting descriptions of how to work with kids. As a teacher, I was hoping for ideas to use in the classroom, and specific projects. With this book, I have tons of places to turn to to get all that, if I do a lot more research, and order items from abroad.

This is a book that is a beginning in learning how to teach and live Peace, but a bare beginning. You'll need to back it up with a lot more, and do a lot more work even to find out the ideas of what you should do. You can find places to look in this book, but the actual information on what you should do is limited.
