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. A world-renown developmental psychologist, Dr. Thomas Lickona has lead the character education movement in schools for 40 years and now he shares with parents the vital tools they need to create a culture of kindness at home. Kindness doesn't stand on its own: it needs a supporting cast of other essential virtues like self-control, good judgment and gratitude.
DR. THOMAS LICKONA is a developmental psychologist and longtime professor of education whose eight books on character education include Raising Good Children and Educating for Character. A past president of the Association for Moral Education, he received the "Sandy" Award for Lifetime Achievement in Character Education.
