Raising decent, caring, and responsible children is the most complex and challenging job in every parent's life--and an increasingly difficult one in today's society. Here is the most authoritative book available on this crucial subject, a valuable and sensitive guide for parents who want their children to grow up with lifelong positive values.
nbsp;
Based on fascinating research, this groundbreaking work by psychologist and educator Dr. Thomas Lickona describes the predictable stages of moral development from birth to adulthood. And it offers you down-to-earth advice and guidance for each stage:
nbsp;
* Seven caring ways to discipline "terrible twos"
* Why your preschooler "lies" and how to handle it
* What to do about a four-year-old's back talk
* How to handle your seven-year-old's endless negotiations about what's "fair"
* Why teens have trouble with peer pressure--and how to help them
* How to talk to your child about drugs, drinking, and sex
* How to help children of any age reason more clearly about what's right and wrong
PLUS . . . A list of more than one hundred children's books that teach moral values, and much more.

"An excellent book on a vastly neglected aspect of raising children."--Dr. Fitzhugh Dodson, author How to Parent, How to Father
nbsp;
"We have been waiting for a book like this for a long time--a readable work that translates a moral development into parents' language and experience."--Dolores Curran, author of Traits of a Healthy Family
nbsp;
"Truly integrates a moral development theory into a consistent approach to childrearing. . . Word-of-mouth recommendations from parent to parent may lift it to the level of popularity once held by Dr. Spock's book on child care."-- Moral Education Forum
