Your guide to parenting in Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts

Talking about how we raise community minded kids, seems as relevant today as it was when first posted in 2011. Check out our booklists and download the PDF for for some guidance and useful suggestions.

How do we raise our children to be thinkers and doers and to care about the world around them? I invited five community-minded parents and the community to share resources and ideas at AS220 on May 25, 2011. Some of the ideas discussed; Tell stories and read to your children about people with different experiences and from different cultures, teach them to be socially responsible by being a role model–sometimes it is the simple everyday things we do such as where and what we shop and how we treat our neighbors that teaches our children to care about the world around them. If you missed the conversation, join in now. Watch the video here.

BOOK LISTS

I believe books are important to share with our kids at any age. Here are books recommendations from local experts that support the idea of kids learning a sense of self, diversity, tolerance, compassion for others, awareness of their sense of place in the world, and social responsibility to their community.
