A girl like Kate will probably go up to be an extroverted networker. I think it is great to let her flex this skill, but to gently show her compassion along the way. What a powerful combination! It reminds me of you actually. :) My son is 5 and is a bit similar, but does get sentimental about some friends. It is hard to try and tell them to play more with one kid over another. I think that a general feeling of empathy towards others (as she grows) will lend itself to naturally spending time with those who would best benefit from her positive energy. Not sure if that makes sense...

This is such a timely post. Colin I just finshed your book 2 days ago and it really spoke to me. I am just starting out on my journey to green-ify my life, and am blogging about it, trying to appeal to regular moms out there like me who want to help but don't know how, and wonder if they can even make a difference. Like you said in your book, the first step is to try. I love all your ideas in this post and will take many of them to heart. I wrote about your book in my blog ( and just spent the afternoon discussing it with my sisters and mom. Thank you for all the inspiration!
