Parenting for Peace Dr. Axness will discuss her 7-step/7-principle approach to fostering such essential peacemaker capacities as self-regulation, self-reflection, imagination, trust, and empathy. She’ll point out fundamental parenting missteps we’ve been making through the centuries, explain why they’re counterproductive, and offer guidelines for fostering children’s development in a vibrantly growth-oriented fashion, rather than a protection-oriented fashion. Children blessed with such “physiological parenting” are a joy to the family, and as adults have the heart to embrace and exemplify peace, the mind to innovate solutions to social and ecological challenges, and the will to enact them. The neurological foundations for this level of health begin forming during the prenatal period, some aspects as early as conception
