Teaching Kids to be Good People; Progressive Parenting for the 21st Century
Rating: N/A - Rating Not Applicable

Annie Fox has been writing about teenagers since she has been one. Here is another one of her insightful books. It looks like a book but it is anything but. It is a WORKBOOK which means that it is filled with questions, answers, essays, self-assessment quizzes. Wanting our kids to grow up to be good people is more than being a good example. Annie has tips and exercises you won't get away with sitting back, kicking up your heels and simply reading. As in her previous books, Anne tends to meet you first-person and so her suggestions and stories are very personal - and not without a full measure of humor. One that cracked me up was her answer to a father whose daughter was behaving less than welcoming to the new baby.She asked him to imagine how his first wife would take to being told that there would be less time for her because he has to spend more time with the new wife, that the house had to be quiet so that the new wife could get her sleep and furthermore, she was expected to share her things with the newcomer. Point made! Way to go, Annie!

I read the book on the Kindle. This is not the optimum way to go though the book. As a workbook you are constantly going back and forth, sharihng it with others. Annie's answers are in the back and you will be wanting to make notes. Buy the paper copy.
