Peace is not something that is or isn't happening somewhere across the world. It is an opportunity that lives within you in every moment. You have an opportunity every day to spread peace in the world, and nowhere is your sphere of influence stronger than in your own family and with your children. Peaceful parenting leads to a more relaxed, connected, and pleasant family life, it's true. But the reason it really matters is this: Peace in the world begins at home.
