Target Audience

Parents from pre-K through 12.


How can we teach kindness, respect, and gratitude in a culture that often fosters their opposites? Using real-life examples from his work with parents over more than four decades, Tom Lickona will describe practical strategies for creating a positive family culture that helps both kids and adults practice these crucial virtues. Applicable to all levels, pre-K through 12. Following the Q & A, Dr. Lickona will be available to sign copies of his latest book, How to Raise Kind Kids: And Get Respect, Gratitude, and a Happier Family in the Bargain (Penguin, 2018).
