By raising children to unfold the uniqueness in their hearts, parents touch the depths of their own.

From the Back Cover:

"Laura Ramirez is a natural teacher who proclaims that being a parent is a sacred gift and the noblest of enterprises. Contrary to conventional wisdom, she demonstrates that parenting is the decisive influence on children--not genetics or peers or media. Keepers of the Children is destined to contribute to our national dialogue on what it really takes to raise integrated, self-efficacious and joyful children."

--Joe Santoro, Ph.D. Co-Chairman of SLS Health, psychologist and author of The Angry Heart: Overcoming Borderline Personality Disorder

"Keepers of the Children
is an example of a non-Indian application of Native American philosophy to raise children in a multicultural society. We all benefit through shared vision and worldview for balance and wellness."

--Jim Warne, Ogalala Lakota, Director of the Center for American Indian Rehabilitation

"I found this book delightful to explore. There are endless passages which echo the principles of good discipline. Laura Ramirez' poetic articulation of human development and selfless nurturing, however, deliver instruction in an eloquent and fascinating way."

--Laura Marineau, Community Education Coordinator for The Children's Cabinet

"In Keepers of the Children, Ramirez combines her own sound convictions about parenting and child development with ancient wisdom of Native Americans. The result is a powerful little guide, that, I am sure, will help many parents and educators. I recommend it."

--Johann Christoff Arnold, author of Endangered: Your Child in a Hostile World

About the Author:

Laura Ramirez is a keynote speaker and parent-and-child advocate who is the mother of two boys and the wife of a Pascua Yaqui Native American man (who was recently inducted into the American Indian Athletic Hall of Fame for his career in baseball.) In raising her children to embrace the fullness of their heritage, she has created a way of parenting that combines the most humane practices of two worlds. Ms. Ramirez has a degree in psychology, has written numerous articles on raising children and is the publisher of Family Matters Parenting Magazine.
