"p class=""book_description"">Everything you need to know about raising kids, lending a hand, and changing the world.p class=""book_description"">This unique guide to parenting is centred on a simple but profound philosophy that will encourage children to become global citizens. One of the greatest legacies parents can leave is a generation of conscientious and thoughtful children. This updated and revised edition from international child rights activists Craig and Marc Kielburger includes a new foreword from His Holiness the Dalai Lama along with new celebrity contributors, Nobel Laureates Elie Wiesel and Betty Williams, Jason Mraz, and Robert Kennedy Jr. Drawing on life lessons from remarkable individuals and success stories from unconventional childhoods, Marc and Craig Kielburger demonstrate how small actions can make a huge difference in the life of a child and ultimately change the world. With a new clean and interactive layout and design, the second edition offers updated stories, new sections, and photography alongside additional tips for parents to take action. The updated book highlights the latest thinking from experts and leading research, but it is not academic. It is brimming with hands-on suggestions, plus first-person contributions from many leaders and celebrities, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Steve Nash, Dr. Jane Goodall, Jane Fonda, Mia Farrow, Sol Guy, Jeff Skoll, and Ethan Zohn. The World Needs Your Kid provides everything you need to know to raise kids, lend a hand, and change the world-all at the same time. "
