Title: How To Raise Kind Kids : And Get Respect, Gratitude, and a Happier Family in the Bargain

How to Raise Kind Children
In his new book, developmental psychologist Thomas Lickona tells readers upfront, “This is a book about kindness. Lickona has been called “the father of modern character education” for good reason. He is the author of eight books on character development. Additionally, he is the founding director of the Center for the 4th and 5th R (Respect and Responsibility) at SUNY Cortland, where he was an early childhood education teacher for 40 years.

Parents and educators looking for a practical framework to instill and nurture kindness will find it here. With the tone of a contemporary Mr. Rogers, Lickona emphasizes throughout his book that kindness matters. He bases his advice on decades of wisdom and research, as well as real stories from families he has worked with.

Recipe for Raising Kind Children
Her recipe for raising kind children includes traditional building blocks like good communication, family gatherings, and household chores. As for discipline, Lickona recommends consistent boundaries, high expectations, and firm but fair consequences. Some of his attitudes may seem outdated in the age of smartphones and social media. Its central message, however, is simple: encourage selflessness, teach by example, and be available for your children.

Because Lickona’s back-to-basics approach offers a solid (if dated) parenting guide, the focus on traditional values will resonate with many parents. A long list of resources, including conversation starters, reading lists, quotes, and family project recommendations, makes How to Raise Kind Kids a great addition to the parenting toolkit.
