Editorial Reviews

Review

There is hardly a single paragraph in the entire book that isn't worth quoting. (Suburban Express)

Extremely valuable....this book is full of words of wisdom about parenting and is highly recommended to professionals, parents, educators, and all those interested in the welfare of children. (Journal Of The American Academy Of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry)

Raising Kids with Character offers a wise, sensible perspective and pragmatic guidance for parents trying to raise ethical, compassionate children. Dr. Berger focuses on intimacy, relationships, and intelligent, self-confident parental authority. She gives the reader numerous clinical jewels and sensitive wisdom to learn from in this thoughtful, informative book. (Alvin Rosenfeld M.D., co-author of Hyper-Parenting)

In a sea of books on child rearing that focus on blame or nurture, it is a joy to welcome Raising Kids with Character. Dr. Berger writes in an easygoing style that encourages readers to participate, without the jargon of the profession. Designed for everyone from therapists to parents, Dr. Berger's text provided me with new insights even after thirty years of my own practice. (Theodore Shapiro, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Weill Medical College of Cornell University; Director of Child Psychiatry, Payne Whitney Clinic)

This book spells out insightfully the 'whys and hows' that lead to healthy child development, self-discovery, good citizenship, and true consideration for others. (Ruth F. Lax Ph.D., author of Becoming and Being a Woman)

A timeless message of understanding, Raising Kids with Character explores the very nature of the intimate relationship between parent and child. This book is destined to become a classic! (Vanita Braver M.D., author of Teach Your Children Well)

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jennifer Bright Reich on March 2, 2011
I've had the pleasure of reading Dr. Berger's work, and her advice has helped me immensely as I raise my two sons. Raising Kids with Character is full of wisdom about parenting, on a topic that I feel is critical, and not discussed often enough. Dr. Berger is a parent herself, and so to me her advice and information is that much more valuable and trusted
