Children Learn What They Live

Parenting to Inspire Values

Most of us have come across the classic poem of the same name and perhaps wondered how to apply its common-sense wisdom in the context of real-world parenting. The authors have done just that: expanded the observations captured in the original poem into a series of warm, insightful essays illustrating how our parenting choices and communication styles affect the young child.

Chapter topics are related to the verses, each accompanied by developmental facts, anecdotes, and examples. If Children Live With Sharing, They Learn Generosity covers how the young child shares his parents with a new baby, how we share our own time with our children, and how we share with those who have less.

A very approachable, satisfying book about instilling values through example. Paperback, 224 pages. All ages.
