Sharing life with a child involves a great many challenges - particularly in our digital age. In addition to keeping your child safe and healthy, 21st-century parents have to contend with things unknown to previous generations, so have little to go on when it comes to making decisions about advice gleaned from the Internet; whether a child should be allowed to use electronic devices, and if so, for how long; how to moderate the effects of celebrity culture pervading both the television and playground, as well as how to handle the current epidemic of childhood obesity. It's therefore time for a fresh approach to managing pre-school children and their care so as to ensure they are ready for school and able to relate well to their peers and teachers. Here, in addition to comprehensive advice on meeting their child's daily needs, the reader will find information on the normal course of development, how to spot problems early and be seen by the appropriate specialists, how to achieve success when dealing with negative, recalcitrant or destructive children and how to manage difficult family situations.

The Zero Footprint Baby
How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby
Paperback ISBN: 1935439650
In our culture, pregnancy, birth, and childrearing are deeply connected to consumption and resource use. From the baby shower to the minivan and the larger apartment or first house, the baby-raising years are the most hyper-consumptive of our lives, and can set a family on an unsustainable track for years to come. The Zero Footprint Baby: How to Save the Planet While Raising a Healthy Baby shows how to raise a child with little to no carbon footprint. The book covers every issue new parents face, including pregnancy (what kind of birth has the lowest impact), what to feed your baby (breastfeed, formula, or both?), childcare (who should take care of the baby, and how?), and of course, diapering. Using a mix of personal anecdotes, summarized research, and clear guidance on how to pursue the most sustainable baby-rearing options, The Zero Footprint Baby is the resource and reference book for all new parents with green inclinations. Keya Chatterjee is the director for international climate policy at the World Wildlife Fund. She previously served as a climate change specialist at the US Agency for International Development, and also worked on communicating climate issues while at NASA. Keya's commentary on climate change policy and sustainability issues has been quoted in numerous media outlets, including USA Today, The New York Times, Fox News, The Associated Press, The Washington Post, and NBC Nightly News. She was also featured in a special issue of Politico on climate change highlighting the "muscle of the movement."
