In an often violent and unpredictable world, how can children learn the basic qualities of kindness, courage and decency?  Raising Compassionate, Courageous Children in a Violent World tells us how.  Based on the latest research and calling upon testimony from parents, educators, and experts in the field, this book gives parents practical methods to help raise children who are able to:

  • love and trust

  • help others in need

  • discern and take a stand against intolerance, bigotry, hatred and victimization

  • do what is right despite pressures and threats from others

  • resist being discouraged by the violence, callousness, and cynicism that often permeates our society

The book draws its inspiration from the real world, offering story after story of children, parents, families and communities overcoming fear and apathy to help others and make a difference.  In addition, Dr. Cohn supplies readers with succinct, research-based parenting techniques for fostering caring, helpful, and hopeful children in today’s troubled world.  This combination of timely advice and moving stories provides an effective, uplifting antidote to the worry and fear surrounding parenting today.
