“Not all teachers are parents, but all parents are teachers. When we teach kids to be good people who possess the social courage to do the right thing, we help to make the world a safer, saner, more accepting place for all of us.”
—Annie Fox, M.Ed.

We live in a time shaped by a viral culture of cruelty. Now and in the future, we desperately need more good people. But where will these young people come from? From the homes of parents with a game plan! In Teaching Kids to Be Good People, Annie Fox has written a very personal, step-by-step guide to teaching your children to make healthy choices (online and off). Because being good is not enough. We have to do good.

This very pragmatic and funny guide includes essays, podcasts, prompts, tools, questions, answers, and self-assessment quizzes, all for the purpose of teaching kids to be good people. Hopefully, you’ll become so engaged in this process that you will inspire your children to do the right thing when no one's watching, and when everyone is watching.

Dr. Lynne Kenney, Psy.D., author of The Family Coach Method

“I wholeheartedly recommend ‘Teaching Kids to be Good People’ to any significant adult in children's lives. This book offers guidance and practical advice to ensure that children are supported to become the best that they can be. The best not only for themselves but the best also for their families, schools, communities and the world!”
Sue McNamara, Director of Education, Six Seconds South East Asia

“Timing is everything, and the time has come for this book! Teaching Kids to Be Good People not only helps parents introduce and support their children’s emotions, it also reminds adults that we too must honor and release our deeply held feelings as well. The time has come!”
Sharon Silver, CPE, author of Stop Reacting and Start Responding

“Annie has been helping teens use their moral compass and parents and educators to support young people’s development of one for 30 years, and her very readable latest book has that level of experience, plus wisdom, anecdotes, exercises, and compass-development tools, packed into it. I highly recommend this book. In it, Annie connects 21st-century parenting to the wisdom of the ages.”
Anne Collier, journalist, youth advocate and co-director of ConnectSafely.org

“[A] wonderfully practical and warm-hearted book. It will empower parents with some really helpful suggestions and ideas for navigating the choppy emotional waters of raising great adults.
