Book Description

Jan. 9 2007

In her now-classic kids are worth it! , Barbara Coloroso offered solid advice and practical parenting techniques that above all preserved the dignity of both parent and child. Coloroso's underlying parenting vision ascribes to parents the responsibility to teach the next generation how to think, not just what to think, so that they may grow into the best people they can be.

Now, in this groundbreaking new book—a natural extension and a profound deepening of her original vision—Coloroso shows parents how to nurture their children's ethical lives, from preschool through adolescence.
 

There can be no more necessary book for our times.

We live in a world where children are so often given the message that the ends justify the means; where harmful, even violent behavior—in families, in communities, and around the world—goes unnoticed, unmitigated, and often unrepented; where children's ethical education can come from a T-shirt slogan or bumper sticker, an Internet site, or the evening news; where rigid moral absolutism or moral relativism has replaced true ethical thinking. In a world such as ours, Just Because It's Not Wrong Doesn't Make It Right is an essential tool.

Beginning with the idea that it is in us to care that we are born with an innate capacity for compassion and caring, Coloroso shows parents how to nurture and guide children's ethical lives from toddlerhood through the teen years using everyday situations at home, at school, in social settings, and in the world at large.

Rich in advice and anecdotes, Just Because It's Not Wrong Doesn't Make It Right offers no less than an ethical vision, one rooted in deep caring, by which we and succeeding generations may not only live, but thrive.

2.0 out of 5 stars Really hard to understand! Feb. 7 2013
Format:Paperback
I'm 3/4 done with this book, and it seem to be a good book, but I find it really hard to understand with the kind of words she used and it talks about a lot of references from other books, and I feel yet that I am still waiting to learn from it... hopefully things will get better in the last part of the book. I did read "Kids are worth it" from the same author and loved that book so much compare to this one, and it was easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful read! Jan. 10 2010
Format:Paperback
I would certainly recommend this book to any parent, childcare or education staff. It changed the way view both "good" and "bad" behaviour at my childcare centre and improved my relationships with the children.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book for raising great kids! Oct. 28 2013
By Karenmc - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I once attended a seminar hosted by Barbara Coloroso. I spent 30 years in the field of education and teachers were always looking for better ways to increase skills dealing with classroom management. I've read other books and none can compare. You really CAN teach your children to think for themselves and make the right decisions that are necessary as an adult.
What you read gives you guidance instead of guilt. You learn ways to interact with kids without taking away any self-esteem. Her books are funny and easy to read. I have been retired for about 5 years. And I still think SHE is the best! I've purchased her books AGAIN for my own children - so they can learn about the important things and get the BIG PICTURE!
