Parents face many challenges raising their children. Although basic questions about moral behavior, rules, privileges, and respect of others remain primary among these, after 9/11 it has become difficult to talk about morality in the light of what happened and the way it happened. The aftermath of 9/11 is as much an issue of personal morality as it is one of national security. Can we ever trust religion again? Can we ever again talk about a morality rooted in beliefs about God without clearly defining who that God is and what those beliefs are? This revised and updated edition of Raising Kids Who Care looks at morality rooted in beliefs about what it means to be human. More than ever, we need to provide our children with an early and adequate setting for their moral compasses, of offering ample time and support as they practice being guided by them, and of instilling in them the conviction that holiness is a matter of being truly human. That morality can only be built one child at a time. Book jacket.
