How can you raise a kind child? This question is taking on a new urgency as our culture grows ever more abrasive and divided.

Using real-life examples and providing tips you can use tonight, Dr. Lickona's How to Raise Kind Kids will help you give and get respect, hold family meetings to tackle persistent problems, get control of screens, set up age-appropriate chores, solve sibling conflicts, discipline in a way that builds character, and deepen your relationship with your kids---putting them on the path to a happy and fulfilling life.
