I am the Children and JYF Coordinator for Australian Yearly Meeting. My role is to support families and meetings to better include children and teenagers at the centre of Quaker practice and community. Our meetings in Australia often have small (if any) numbers of children and teenagers, and families can feel quite isolated at the local meeting level. It may only be during Regional Meeting or Yearly Meeting gatherings that Quaker families come together. I would be interested to start a discussion on how to support parents in parenting their children using their Quaker faith and principles.

Hi Jenny, I was isolated up in Queensland raising my kids, and I used the book "friends and their children" as my go-to book, but it is probably a bit dated these days!

Thanks for that recommendation Peri! I am putting together a list of resources, and can add this book  to it.
