Every Parent Should Get This Book Nov. 19 2007
By David M. Fetter - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have a 7 year old daughter and I decided to purchase this book to see if I could use it to help her learn good character traits and morals without the religious overtone. It has worked out great! It's supposed to be for slightly older kids but I just work with her a little more slowly. I spend time reading the sections to her and after each paragraph, I pause to see if she has any questions. If she does then I spend the time to explain what she doesn't understand. At the end of each section there is an interactive part which encourages further thinking and discussion between us. She loves it now and practically begs me to learn more about good character. What's even better is she is learning and practicing it now. Soon, I'm going to have to get another book like this, which will more than likely be by the same publisher. This is an excellent book. Don't hesitate getting it. It will be one of the best things you, as a parent, will do with your child.

Good Tool~ July 5 2012
By Michelle - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this hoping to teach my 7 year old better character traits and because she has a natural love for reading. My husband and I had never received such formal instruction on character and we both find ourselves listening in. It gives each chapter a trait with the definition, stories, and how to apply it. Plus critical thinking questions. It is a little hard for my 7 year old with some of the larger words and she is a very skilled reader for her age. Most often we do it together, one chapter a week. Then we keep it part of our discussion that week as we experience situations to use each trait.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have used this book with my own kids, as a counselor and in the school setting. It is a great tool for getting kids to think about character traits and their own choices and behaviors.
