Good Things To Do: Expert Suggestions for Fostering Goodness in Kids
We asked several of the foremost names in child development and education to offer their practical wisdom for helping young people grow in goodness, compassion, understanding, development of the spirit, and more. What they offered are treasures, both readable and of tremendous importance. Each expert’s suggestions are presented in short, almost bullet-point format, easy to read and written specifically for educators and parents in independent schools, but relevant to parents and educators everywhere for character education.
