Love, Rinse, Repeat: Raising Children With Justice, Mercy, and Kindness

Love, Rinse, Repeat: Raising Children With Justice, Mercy, and Kindness

“How do we build a better world? One key way is by learning to raise our children with justice, mercy, and kindness.”

I sat down with Cindy Wang Brandt to talk about her progressive Christian approach to parenting. We discuss what its like to write about parenting while parenting, talking with kids about the tough issues (like racism, climate change, gender inequality), extending autonomy to children and asking what it means to really listen to them. We also touch on her own faith journey, and how she thinks about sharing faith with children.

I also make the case that the prophet Malachi read the advanced proofs of Cindy’s book.
