eco parenting - growing greener children

The essential guide to raising healthy, happy children to live lightly on the planet

A comprehensive resource for parents wanting to raise healthier, happier children. This informative book provides the information that you need to help your children and your family live a healthy balanced life.  The book is a message of hope - that by taking responsibility for the environments we create for our children - we can help parents and families regain control of their own health and well being.

Jane Hanckel has been researching parenting, health and education for over 25 years.  When Jane's youngest child developed serious eczema and asthma that was unable to be remedied by conventional therapies she educated herself on the importance of environment, diet, time in nature and developmentally appropriate education.   Combining this knowledge enabled Jane to be instrumental in remedying her child's eczema and asthma, creating a basis for their family's healthy and sustainable living. 

Jane is dedicated to helping children and families lead a healthier, happier and more rewarding way of life.  This book is a powerful tool to enable families to raise healthy and happy children.
