You Can Help Save The Natural Child Project

I received this email the other day and thought that some of my readers might be interested in helping out:

Save The Natural Child Project

The Natural Child Project has promoted attachment parenting and natural learning since 1996. We love helping families, but the current economic climate has made it difficult for us to continue.

We are sending this one-time message to our newsletter subscribers to ask for a small donation. If everyone gives just $5, we can continue to encourage and inform attachment parenting families around the world.

Our vision is a world in which all children are treated with dignity, respect, understanding, and compassion. In such a world, every child can grow into adulthood with a generous capacity for love and trust. Our society has no more urgent task.

"I want to thank you so much for your site, it has made a profound difference in my life." - Darlene Walsh

How can you help?
Donation online with credit card or PayPal: www.naturalchild.org/donate

Thank you for your support.

This is where I found some fantastic quotes on childhood for another post I wrote a while back. In fact, this is their quote for February:

"Modern education is competitive, nationalistic and separative. It has trained the child to regard material values as of major importance, to believe that his nation is also of major importance and superior to other nations and peoples. The general level of world information is high but usually biased, influenced by national prejudices, serving to make us citizens of our nation but not of the world." Albert Einstein

Who's gonna argue with Einstein? And this was something he said before he died in 1955, obviously. Nothing's changed. I like this one, that I found on the Quotations Page:

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom. Albert Einstein, 'Out of My Later Years,' 1950

You can also buy some great books on parenting through The Natural Child Project.
