Format: Paperback
The collaborative work of academician Bettie B. Youngs, clinical psychologist and philanthropist Joanne Wolf, business entrepreneur Joani Wafer, and cultural anthropologist Dawn Lehman, "Teaching Kids To Care: Nurturing Character And Compassion" focuses upon assisting parents to instill life-enhancing values into the characters of their children through the repeated practice of caring for others (and for themselves) through the five 'touchstones' of Interdependence, Connection, Perspective, Gratitude, and Inspiration. Of special note are the chapters devoted to 'Inspiring Testimonials from Kids Korps USA Experiences'; 'Kids Korps USA'; and 'Creating a Caring Epidemic in Your Community'. Enhanced with two appendices (Resources for Teaching Kids to Care and Suggested Reading), as well as extensive Endnotes, "Teaching Kids To Care" is thoroughly 'parent friendly' and highly recommended for personal, academic, and community library Parenting Skills Development reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

Format: Paperback
I highly recommend "Teaching Kids to Care' for any parent who hopes to raise a loving, compassionate child who cares for others and wants to make the world a better place.

This resource has something for everyone. It balances great research in child development with useful and easy to follow step-by-step lessons and ideas for fostering compassion in your kids.

Plus, the photos are fun and are a great learning aide that may inspire your child to say, "Hey Mom, I want to try that too."
