A GOLD MINE OF STRATEGIES AND EXERCISES FOR PARENTS
Values Press, 1991; Simon & Schuster, 1976; McGraw-Hill, 1977
Dr. Sidney B. Simon and Sally Wendkos Olds
This breakthrough book provides parents with a revolutionary, practical and enjoyable system for helping their children to develop a system of values. Although values themselves cannot be taught, since moral codes and social mores are constantly in flux, parents can teach children a process for arriving at their own values. The book examines and clarifies even the most complex ethical issues. It turns dinner-table conversations into a unique program that helps parents teach their children how to examine life rationally, weigh alternatives and foresee consequences, cope with the world they will grow into and prepare themselves to lead joyful and rewarding adult lives—all within a morally valid framework.
The system is based on a smorgasbord of game-like “strategies,” which are easy to teach and fun to learn. Hundreds of simple examples help families examine their feelings and beliefs about love, friendship, money, work, honesty and responsibility—to oneself, to others and to society. And it is truly a family affair, for in the process of helping their children establish a system of values, parents will discover more about their own personal values.
