For Goodness? Sake
Supporting Children & Teens in Discovering Life?s Highest Values
By Nitai Deranja
Many parents and teachers are at a loss when it comes to encouraging values in children. Some parents, in the name of open-mindedness, avoid passing on their moral principles to their children. Schools, through either fear of lawsuits or a narrow focus on academics, bend over backwards to keep from bringing values into the classroom. In the midst of this vacuum, we are raising generations of children whose standards of conduct are drawn primarily from television, movies, computer games, and popular music.
In this timely and important book, Nitai Deranja, the founder of the Living Wisdom Schools, a parent and school teacher for over 30 years, explains some basic, non-sectarian tools and techniques that parents and educators can use to help children and teens cultivate positive values. Through the helpful discussion and hands-on exercises he provides, children and teens will have fun while learning universally esteemed values such as kindness,cheerfulness, courage, willingness, and self-control, among many others.
The book For Goodness’ Sake is available in English and Italian.
