Format: Paperback
I recently reviewed several parenting books for a thesis paper to see how the advice stacked up against the all research articles on parenting that I could find. I read the books first and found myself really liking this one due to its readability and grounding in research. Also, it has sound philosophical teachings and specific advice that is appropriate to every age and stage. It combines the fields of Child Development and Psychology with morality and good common sense to lend the reader a practical guide. It leaves plenty of room for readers to fashion our parenting philosophy combining the information given with our own intuition, experience and views. Anyway, I also reviewed three other more popular books (bestsellers), some of which cited research of their own. What I found when I compared the advice given in these books with the findings of popular current studies on parenting is that Lickona's book was the most detailed, most grounded in research, least repetitive book of the four, AND it was very well-supported with the current findings I encountered. Hooray! If only the chapter on babies were more detailed (including more information on the most healthy philosophies for feeding, sleeping, etc.), I'd be even more thrilled. (I have a 4-month-old.) However, as a mother and scholar, I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to raise moral, thinking children. I would also recommend it to teachers.

I received this book some time ago thinking it was just another "others doing a better job than me" book. I recently starting reading it and found it very good for providing a sound approach to raising my own children.

I haven't finished reading this book yet but I will rate it anyway. It's been quite good in helping me understand my son and where he is in his moral development. The author talks about different stages/levels that the child goes through and how he thinks and reasons at each level. It has helped me to be more patient & understanding towards my son. It's a bit wordy but still worth the read. There were only a couple little things I disagreed with (he is not against letting a child cry it out and I am) but I am the type of person who can take what she wants and leave the rest & the things I didn't agree with are not things he went on about at length. On the psychology level I think the doctor is right on the money. And for that I do recommend this book. It really makes me think about the way I want to raise my child and prepare for the future & how I'm going to react when certain moral dilemnas come up.

Tom Lickona is reality based! Raising Good Children provides parents with information regarding the moral development of children . This knowledge helps parents to understand why children do what they do and more importantly, that their child is normal. He also has a common sense approach to discipline. Parents can relate to his techniques. Topics in the book include: How to help your child through the stages of moral reasoning, from preschool to adulthood, and concerns that cut across ages and stages.

Parents ------read this!
It is soooooo user friendly and on target.
If you choose to do the best for your child----then read this book.
I wish it was a requirement for all new parents to get one
of these books before they take that baby home.
It is like a direction manual for those young people:)

Put down the remote and video game and parent!!!!
The rewards are huge------mine are children with
a PhD, a consultant and a pharmacist.

Children are the only hope the human race has-teach them well.
