The character education movement, implemented by educators around the world, is an incredibly successful and growing phenomenon. When important character attributes like honesty, integrity, and fairness are modeled and taught to kids, they develop an inner compass that continues to guide them in a positive direction. The missing link has been helping parents with their crucial participation at home - until now. In Character Is the Key, parenting expert and therapist Sara Dimerman shares proven techniques in a powerful, step-by-step plan that will help you bring your family together, improve communication, and unlock the very best in your children - and yourself. Get started today!
MY REVIEW My husband and I have had many discussions over the years about the importance of character and how we can pass that on to our children. Our most recent discussion has been about how to teach empathy. Our son Aiden especially struggles with this because of his Autism but we want compassion to become second nature to all three of our kids. Unfortunately neither of us were really sure HOW to teach compassion!
When Mom Central contacted me about the possibility of reviewing Character Is The Key I was hopeful that Dimerman would have some helpful suggestions for us- and I was right! This book covers a LOT of information and gives some very practical advice. I love the Family Activity suggestions found at the end of several chapters. I also really appreciated how Dimerman walks the reader step-by-step through the dynamics of family meetings- why, when and HOW to have them.
The book is straight forward and easy to read and can be adapted for use in ANY family. I would definitely recommend Character Is The Key!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Character Is the Key: How to Unlock the Best in Our Children and Ourselves and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.
