21st century children are no ordinary children. The children of this century walk over crumbling grounds as the whole world caves in under the stress of political, financial, moral, and environmental woes. Children are extremely vulnerable, and they are being disturbed at very deep levels of consciousness by the constant bombardment of violent images in the media. "We must care, more than that, we must do something about it."-Monique Rodriguez.
This book motivates childcare providers and early childhood educators to put on their boots and make a heart-felt commitment to the emotional well-being of all children under their care. Monique provides a straightforward discussion on the vices of our modern high-tech world and the emotional vulnerabilities of little children. She also offers insight into the world of relaxation and provides a spectrum of creative strategies that when applied in our work with children can help them develop better self-control and achieve a happier existence.
