Why Peaceabilities Is Unlike Any Other Peace Program
Teaching people how to get along with each other is of critical importance throughout the world. Because violent adults are usually set in their ways, our best hope lies in teaching these abilities to children. If parents and teachers foster children's abilities to live peacefully with those around them, peace will ripple through families, neighborhoods, and even countries.
