Basically, children learn morality from example.
Passing on Moral Values to the Next Generation Three things in human life are important The first is to be kind The second is to be kind The third is to be kind So said Henry James in response to his nephew when he sought advice on what he ought to do with his life Robert Coles, known for his extraordinarily insightful thought provoking and profoundly sensitive five volume work, Children in Crisis, delves into what it means to be moral and goes further to examine how children even very young chi [...]
This is not a how to book, with a strategy to impart moral intelligence to your children Rather, a general outline of children s life stages, fleshed out with a generous supply of engaging anecdotal stories taken from the author s long career A few concrete points were made 1 Parents who supply instant gratification are setting their children up for failure in the real world Self control is essential I need a drink of water NOW 2 Children learn by example, and are quick to learn the difference b [...]

I admit I did not read every page of this book but I did not find it very insightful as a parent I guess I was looking for hands on ideas for raising a child with morality The book discussed real or fictional examples and evaluated why children ended up without moralityt how to make sure they have morality.
I started reading this book because it was in the car It s actually my mom s book Though it does have some cool information I especially like reading about other people s mistakes kids and adults,hee,hee D
I like that included the voices of people with whom he s worked, but I question some of the beliefs presented Can an infant really understand that sometimes you have to wait Maybe just not mineybe I really am spoiling him
If you are looking for bullet points short statements and specifics on how to raise a moral child this is not the book While there are some good points, they are buried within the author s recollections of his times with kids of various ages Not a quick, easy read.
A decent book with pretty good ideas about morality and pitfalls many parents make when trying to instill it into our children It was worth reading, but not my favorite book on the subject.
In conclusion, lead by examples, do not send mixed moral messages.
Thought provoking read, especially because I found it helped me see particular students in my class this year completely, helping me better empathize with their internal difficulties.
I didn t really finish the book Maybe I will pick it up another time When reading for pleasure, I much prefer stories.
This was a very thought provoking book and I have recommended it over the years to many people in education.
