How to Talk to Your Kids About Climate Change

Turning Angst into Action

With catastrophic global warming already baked into the climate system, today's children face a future entirely unlike that of their parents. Yet how can we maintain hope and make a difference in the face of overwhelming evidence of the climate crisis?

Help is at hand. Written by Harriet Shugarman – the Climate Mama and trusted advisor to parents – How to Talk to Your Kids About Climate Change provides tools and strategies for parents to explain the climate emergency to their children and galvanize positive action. Coverage includes:

  • The unvarnished realities of the climate emergency, where we are at, and how we got here
  • Strategies for talking to kids of different ages about the climate crisis, including advice from engaged parents on the ground
  • How to maintain our own hope and that of our children
  • A list of practical actions families can take to tackle the climate change crisis
  • Ideas for helping children follow their passions in pursuit of a livable, just, and sustainable world.

A lifeline for parents who are feeling overwhelmed with fear and grief, this book provides both hope and practical ways to engage children in pursuit of a better world that is still possible.
