Anna Campbell’s “honeycomb” is a metaphor for a context in which parents can raise resilient, capable, caring kids who can make their way in, and contribute positively to, a world that currently appears to be careening toward environmental and economic ruin. Parents who are aware of climate change, peak oil, and other global problems will find both honesty and inspiration. - Richard Heinberg, Author, The End of Growth, Senior Fellow, Post Carbon Institute
We face a pressing challenge of creating resilient communities able to meet the challenges of peak oil, climate change and over consumption. “Honeycomb Kids” provides an easy-to-read, handy tool for shaping a sustainable, fulfilling future. While it provides practical ideas for how to nurture children who focus on what really matters, it also challenges parents and community members to reconsider how we live. Hopefully it will generate conversations and action at dinner tables, schools, playgroups, places of worship, parties and even boardrooms throughout the country. - Dr Graeme Stuart, Family Action Centre, The University of Newcastle
Honeycomb Kids provides an important and timely contribution to the ‘collective wisdom’ of modern day parents across the globe. It is unique in its approach and scope, addressing parenting and child development in the context of wider society and the significant and unprecedented changes that are taking place, both locally and worldwide. Honeycomb Kids presents a convincing argument for reconnecting modern-day children with nature, family and community, which moves way beyond the individual, and explores the impact of doing so (and not doing so) on future generations,and the health of the planet. This book has something for everyone and just like life itself, offers light and shade, humour and deeper contemplation, frustration and hope. Full of practical suggestions (which we are kindly encouraged to ‘add our own special ingredient’) and honest reflection, this mother’s journey offers sincerity and inspiration and is set to be an important catalyst for affecting change, for the betterment of families, communities and humankind. - Lenora Newcombe, President of Hunter Alliance for Childhood Inc.
Transition initiatives attract people of all ages, concerned about the world our generations are creating for future generations to live in. We try to live more sustainably ourselves and work at building local community resilience. We recognise that this process of transition will possibly take several generations. Anna Campbell’s Honeycomb Kids brings a fresh and very important new perspective to the Transition narrative. Written with skill, humour and heart, this book gives simple, practical and wise guidance for raising children who will undoubtedly be influential in building sustainable, resilient communities wherever they live in the future. Read it yourself, be inspired, and give it as a gift to anyone you know with children – the planet will thank you! - Peter Driscoll, Co-founder, Transition Sydney
