A Good Childhood

Full Product Description

What is it like to be a child in the UK today? How does this match up to God's plan for childhood? What are our responsibilities towards the children growing up in our communities?

This resource is designed to help you to explore society's understanding of modern childhood and to inform, improve and inspire all our relationships with children. Supported by online resources including contemporary images and video interviews, it examines evidence from The Children's Society's Good Childhood Inquiry from the Bible's perspective through a series of seven studies for individuals and church groups.

Each session focuses on a key theme of the research:
- Values
- Inequality
- Family
- Well-being
- Friendship
- Lifestyle
- Learning

Explore your role in making childhood better for every child - and be inspired to make a positive difference in your community!

Through its lobbying and research, The Children's Society seeks to influence policy and perceptions at all levels so that young people have a better chance in life.

A Good Childhood by Liz Baddaley was published by Barnabas in April 2014 and is our 41080th best seller. The ISBN for A Good Childhood is 9780857461469.

"I am delighted to see children's voices at the heart of these Bible studies. Research from The Children's Society offers new ways of interpreting familiar biblical stories and this material offers a creative means of exploring children's issues in the context of the Christian faith. I heartily recommend them for cell groups or as discussion starters within your church." - The Rt Revd Tim Thornton, Bishop of Truro.
