How parents can help their children do the right thing

Rushworth Kidder writes and speaks on ethics  - his new book is for parents.

Last year Parker teachers worked with a trainer from Kidder's Institute for Global Ethics.  We talked about how to teach ethics in school.  How can students determine the right path when faced with "right v.s. right" decisions?  How can they build a personal code of ethics to help guide them? 

"Good Kids, Tough Choices takes a developmental look at ethics and ethical decision-making and provides tools for parents as their children grow and struggle with life's ethical dilemmas. The book helps parents talk winningly to kids about the three essentials of ethics:  knowing what's right, making good choices, and standing for conscience."
