Let’s be honest. We parents can be a judgmental bunch. You need only go as far as an online discussion group for parents to find a bunch of us scolding each other for not holding up a magnifying glass to each food label, or for forgetting a plastic bag that one time. Our kids’ health is important to us. And so is the health of our planet. But how do we protect our kids and our earthly home without going insane, or driving each other to that end? And, how do we make sure our kids grow up to be good citizens of the earth, so there is a planet left to pass onto their own kids?
