In a society adrift without a moral compass, parents worry about their children navigating through difficult issues and making the right choices. Substance abuse, escalating school violence, and the increasing use of pornography make daily headlines. What can parents do in the face of these grim statistics?
To help kids survive--and thrive--in contemporary culture, parents need practical tools to help their children build a strong foundation of moral character. Don Otis, the father of three children himself, offers a wealth of information on moral decision-making in this book, including:
* helping children stand firm against peer pressure
* limiting negative influences
* building strong moral character
* teaching kids how to make good decisions on their own
* helping children make good friends without being overprotective
This easy-to-use guidebook will be an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, and anyone who seeks to empower children to make confident, positive choices in a chaotic world.
