Sharna Olfman joins Raffi Cavoukian to introduce his original philosophy, Child Honouring—a compassionate revolution in values, a children-first approach to global restoration.

This remarkable anthology outlines the unprecedented threats to life at this defining moment in history, and offers a novel and systemic remedy for societal transformation based on honouring our youngest and “most valuable players.” Contributors from across many disciplines include renowned child development author Penelope Leach, Nobel Prize nominee Lloyd Axworthy, celebrated cultural historian Riane Eisler, bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver, and ecological economist Ron Colman.

Child Honouring is a corrective lens that, once we look through it, allows us to question everything from the way we measure economic progress to our stewardship of the planet; from our physical treatment of children to the corporate impact on their minds and bodies; from rampant consumerism to factory schooling. It offers a proactive developmental approach to creating sustainable societies.

As a creed that crosses all faiths and cultures, Child Honouring is a unifying idea: a central organizing principle for a culture of peace. This book will inspire thought—and provoke action—by all who read it.

Reviews:

"I entirely agree with Raffi Cavoukian that children everywhere are like the seeds of the future of our world."
His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“Child Honouring should be studied by world leaders in politics and industry, as well as by school boards and teachers.”
Robert Bateman, OC, renowned artist

“A wonderful movement that calls to the hearts of all of us.”
Gary Zukav, author of The Seat of the Soul

“No initiative I know carries more galvanizing power of truth.”
Joanna Macy, author of World As Lover, World As Self
