Parents stumble into what is arguably the most challenging job in the world with little, if any, preparation. After all, parenting comes with no formal training, no internship, no instruction manual. We know that Judaism requires us to introduce our children to a moral and ethical code of behavior, but how do we always know the right thing to say or do? How do we help our children grow up to be responsible and moral adults and give them the skills they will need to care about themselves, about the world they live in, and about the people they deal with every day?
In this thought-provoking and highly practical book, Rosenberg explores the challenges of raising ethical children today and addresses the key things that we can say and do to set them on the right path. With Judaism’s perspective on universal moral virtues as her guide, she helps parents and other adults raise kids to do what’s right and make this world a better place.
