GET CLEAR ON WHY THERE IS HOPE: An excerpt from THE PARENTS’ GUIDE TO CLIMATE REVOLUTION by Mary DeMocker
By Publicity Admin

“Relax,” writes Mary DeMocker in her new book, The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night’s Sleep. “This isn’t another light bulb list. It’s not another overwhelming pile of parental ‘to-dos’ designed to shrink your family’s carbon footprint through eco-superheroism.” Instead, DeMocker, the cofounder and creative director of 350 Eugene, lays out a lively, empowering, and doable blueprint for engaging families in the urgent, all-important endeavor of “climate revolution.” In one hundred brief, action-packed chapters, parents learn dozens of wide-ranging ideas and activities that can be part of this revolution — from embracing simplicity parenting, to freeing themselves from dead-end science debates, to teaching kids about the political power of creative protest, to changing their lifestyle in ways that will bring their family together, improve moods, and also reduce their impact on the earth. Engaging and creative, this is for every parent who wants to act effectively and empower their children to feel they can do the same.

We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book, in which DeMocker shares how to start a climate revolution.

IS BUSYNESS KEEPING YOU FROM WHAT YOU NEED AND WANT? An excerpt from BREAKING UP WITH BUSY by Yvonne Tally
By Publicity Admin

Women today have reset the bar, and it’s high. They collectively aim into the stratosphere: to be the most creative and dynamic professionals, the parents with all the answers, the most understanding and loving partners, and the best and most reliable friends. Their perfectionistic expectations have led to an unrealistic and terribly demanding mind-set, and they multitask from one event to another, silently murmuring under their exhausted, coffee-soaked breath, “Something’s got to give. I’m tired of it always being me!” 

In Breaking Up with Busy: Real-Life Solutions for Overscheduled Women, author Yvonne Tally offers practical, effective solutions to the frustrations caused by a time-strapped lifestyle. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from the book.
