Publisher’s Description: 

Can you teach a child to be kind? This vital question is taking on a new urgency as our culture grows ever more abrasive and divided.We all want our kids to be kind. But that is not the same as knowing what to do when you catch your daughter mocking a classmate who is struggling to fit in. A world-renowned developmental psychologist, Dr. Thomas Lickona has led the character education movement in schools for twenty-five years and now he shares with parents the vital tools they need to create a culture of kindness at home. Kindness doesnt stand on its own. It needs a supporting cast of other essential virtueslike self-control, courage, and gratitude. So many things in our society teach a message of selfishness that it takes hard work to raise kind kids.

With concrete examples drawn from the many families he has worked with over the years and clear tips you can act on tonight, How to Raise Kind Kids will help you give and get respect, hold family meetings to tackle persistent problems, set up age-appropriate chores, tackle sibling cruelty, discipline in a way that builds character, and improve the dynamic of your relationship with your children while putting them on the path to a happier and more fulfilling life.
