Lifeways is about children, about family life, and about being a parent. But most of all it is about freedom and how the tension between personal fulfillment and family life may be resolved. Lifeways originated among groups of women (and some men) who were seeking a renewed spirit in family life. They wanted to create a new vision of the purpose of mothers and fathers, a new eye for the meaning of home as a place that supports everyone involved. This book is a valuable resource for parents and kindergarten teachers and playgroup leaders, as well as for women's support groups. Adult level.
