Without an environment of emotional safety there is a failure to thrive that impedes a culture of peace. Jackie shares some each steps to take in order to build an environment of caring from which peace can emerge.

I used one of her simple exercise with my preschoolers. They live in a world of differences and yet is adults do not help them to see and be with those differences, the other is the enemy. From a very young age a family can help member embrace ways in which they are not some.

Peace is not a world without conflict. In any long term interactions, conflict is a possibility. What skills ought to be taught all of us in order move through those times in a respectful way?

Her newest books, Peacemaking: Family Activities for Justice and Peace, Vol. 1 and 2 are great foundations for anyone who wants peace in their lifetime.
