Summary
"When authors Shumaker and Heckel wrote their earlier book on 'Children Who Murder, ' it became clear to them that society--specifically a significant portion of its young members--is in crisis. The challenge is this: there are extensive differences now in the family, the school environment, the community, and even religious institutions, compared to previous generations. For example, families of today rarely have a coherent extended family. Dual working parents are common. Church activities and events are not nearly as evident in the community as they were in the past. Schools, under increasing demand for testing and measurement, devote far less time to issues of character than they did in the past. Altogether, the changes are significant and Shumaker and Heckel show how some parents are creatively handling this challenge. The authors do not argue that most American kids are out of hand, cruel, or immoral. They are neither cynics nor prophets of doom. What they do see is a disappearance of supports for parents, making the adults' job more demanding. Yet they pinpoint ways some parents are succeeding in this new millennium. This book begins by explaining the basics of moral development in children, reviewing recent research findings. It offers parents, teachers, professors, administrators, clergy, and legislators helpful tools to promote character. ---Cover
