Sinossi

“Not all teachers are parents, but all parents are teachers. When we teach kids to be good people who possess the social courage to do the right thing, we help to make the world a safer, saner, more accepting place for all of us.” —Annie Fox, M.Ed.

We live in a time shaped by a viral culture of cruelty. Now and in the future, we desperately need more good people. But where will these young people come from? From the homes of parents with a game plan! In Teaching Kids to Be Good People, Annie Fox has written a very personal, step-by-step guide to teaching your children to make healthy choices (online and off). Because being good is not enough. We have to do good.

This very pragmatic and funny guide includes essays, podcasts, prompts, tools, questions, answers, and self-assessment quizzes, all for the purpose of teaching kids to be good people. Hopefully, you’ll become so engaged in this process that you will inspire your children to do the right thing when no one's watching, and when everyone is watching.

The time has come!” —Sharon Silver, CPE, author of “Stop Reacting and Start Responding”

“Annie has been helping teens use their moral compass and parents and educators to support young people’s development of one for 30 years, and her very readable latest book has that level of experience, plus wisdom, anecdotes, exercises, and compass-development tools, packed into it.

5.0 su 5 stelle GREAT little book! 22 maggio 2013
Di Dr. Par Donahue - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
All my kids are grown and so are most of my 14 grand kids, but as a pediatrician I found this book to be an excellent source for hands on "how to" advice!

Ann's underlying premise is: Not all teachers are parents, but all parents are teachers! I couldn't agree more, and I would add that: All parents are their kids BEST teachers. Unfortunately not all parents believe that, but they will when they finish this little, easy to read, book.

I liked what she had to say about peer pressure by calling it "peer approval". We all seek approval from our peers, and many times we do "what's needed" to get that approval. That's OK, Ann says as long as it is the right thing, the thing we want to do, or is of neutral moral or social value. In my new book, for release this fall, "Tools for Effective Parenting", I call peer pressure - peer permission, which is in line with her thinking. Effective parenting, (the act, not my book) Ann says is "parenting which helps kids develop a code of ethics." And that code, must include integrity!

She has a great approach to bullying and "the village" parent concept. Bullying includes hard things like "online" and even "Credit card buying". Read it you'll love it, and it will help you as well as your children!

Two other things I really like: If you need something from your kids, or anyone, don't ask, TELL. I have heard so many parents ask their kids if they "Want to go home, or want to go to bed, or eat their dinner, or want to go to the rest room." Kids always say "No" and the parents feel frustrated. Her advice and mine: TELL them, "It's time to go home, to go to bed, or the bathroom." And "You need to do your home work, now!"

I like her "Butt in Campaign"! If you see a child, even if it's not yours, doing something good, compliment them! If they are doing something not so good, like hitting another child or taunting someone, tell them that's not the way to act, we should not hurt other people!

I really loved this book, Fox told a story at the end of each topic and asked the reader what s/he would say or do in this situation. Then she would say, read my response at some number, I did not know what that number meant until I got to the end of the book and found all her responses. In a hard copy this would not have been a problem, but I am not experienced enough with e-reading to make it work, even if I had known the numbers referred to pages

However, after Annie read my review she,like the great teacher she is sent me this message: "I just read your comprehensive review of "Teaching Kids to Be Good People".... what a great way to start my day! Thank you so much for the obvious thoroughness of your reading and your writing about it. I really appreciate the time you took to review the book and (of course) your high praise. I did want to let you know, about the quibble you had with the e-book Q & A layout. We set up the answer section separate from the questions to encourage the reader to really think about their response before referencing mine. I understand that you weren't clear where the answers were. In the e-book there is a link after each question that says: Read my reply, by clicking on that link, the reader is taken directly to the answer! Then, by simply clicking the BACK BUTTON (of every e-reader and browser) you are returned to your place in the text where you were reading. AKA, back where you started from.

"Reading in the e-book version, with this automatic Back and Forth, is actually easier than with the print version, though I LOVE your suggestion for parents to read the book with a pen and notebook in hand!

"Sorry you had any confusion with the Q & A. Thanks again for this excellent review!"

Thanks Annie for your lesson in e-book reading; you proved, once again, how valuable a good teacher is!

This is a great book, I would recommend reading it in hard paper version and having a pen and note book in hand. It's a book worth keeping and referring to often as your child grows. In short, ITS A REAL GEM!

5.0 su 5 stelle Parent Educator Loves This Book and the author! 3 aprile 2013
Di Judy Helm Wright aka Auntie Artichoke - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Hello from Montana,

I really enjoyed reading this book and have already loaned it to my daughter. Annie makes me feel as if we are having a good conversation and swapping stories about how to help strengthen families and give parents tools.

Parents frequently tell me that they need to words to say in family situations. If parents were not parented how can they know what is "normal ages and stages" and what needs to be addressed with a firm voice?

Her writing paints a picture in my mind and I found myself smiling as I read. Wanted to shout "Yep, been there and done that and lived to laugh about it."

You will enjoy the various ways she gets the message of respectful communication across to parents, teachers and other caring adults.

4.0 su 5 stelle If I can teach my child this we will all be happy 31 gennaio 2013
Di Helen Bairstow - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book sat on my Kindle for a few weeks before I got around to reading it. Don't make the same mistake. Download it and read it NOW. But read it with a pen in hand or finger on the hi-lighter button! There were so many gems in this book. Original stuff coupled with action plans of how to incorporate it into your life. Even wording of what to say to your child. I'm memorizing many of them. So why only four stars? The 'What would you do section' drove me nuts. There was the question but you had to click to get the answer and then I lost my place. Petty really but then again if everyone gives this books five stars you might think we are paid to review this book and that would be a shame as this book can change the future of our most precious asset - our children!

Just one of my favourite quotes ... "Not even the hottest hate gives us a free pass to hurt anyone. That's why teaching kids to be good people, involves helping them to understand emotions so they can learn to diffuse their own incendiary devices before losing control and hurting someone."

"Pretending that what's going on around us is OK when it isn't, rarely leads to good choices. Neither does keeping our goodness locked inside because we're worried that our kindness will be mocked." (83 percent admitted that "sometimes, always, or almost always" they pretend things are OK when they aren't.) And the script Annie provides to tell your child about faking it is priceless.

The broken windows theory made so much sense. I found myself lost in her stories but always coming out at the end with incredible learning, especially the story about tossing your candy wrapper on the floor.

The Family Climate Questionnaire is currently printing and will be the focus of our next family meeting.

Loved her take on US vs. THEM. There is only US. Imagine if every parent read this book?

5.0 su 5 stelle A Clear Path for Kind Parenting 22 ottobre 2012
Di L. Monserrat - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I read this book when it was available for free download and since have given gift certificates through Amazon for friends to read. I love the blend of stories from the author's life and clear, easy to follow ideas for implementing communication and modeling good behavior.
It's familiar for me to give commands to kids, yet I would bristle if kids spoke to me in the same manner. "Please wash the dishes." is just as easy as a command.
The idea of a family meeting where a parent really listens is not a new concept to me, yet I tend to jump in to problem solve when listening actively would accomplish the goal. This book gave me a path and left me feeling as if I could be a better parent and in doing that, show the kids in my life how to be better people.

5.0 su 5 stelle Teaching Kids to Be Good People Really Can Be Taught! 18 ottobre 2012
Di Jean A. Tracy - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Teaching Kids to Be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century is a treasure. Parents everywhere will enjoy not only the great ideas but also the easy format and Annie's excellent writing style.

You'll find that Annie is truly genuine as she reveals her own painful stories to remind us that we must model genuine feelings so our children won't stuff their emotions and have problems as adults. No, she's not promoting yelling or screaming. She is advocating daily conversations about the real concerns our children have.

I loved hearing the questions from kids and teens about their problems whether about drugs, alcohol, or 'fitting in' versus being fake. Every chapter is a lesson on how to teach kids to be good people. Annie shares topics like 1.Real World Assignments, 2. Fuel for Thought, 3. Conversations That Count, and 4. Teach (the fun homework to share with your childrn.)

Pick up Teaching Kids to Be Good People: Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century if you want to raise great kids with awesome characters.
