"Developing character in our children is one of a parent's most important tasks. [Sara Dimerman] provides an innovative, step-by-step template for families who want to explore the values they cherish and deepen their commitment to living by those values." Caroline Connell, Editor, Today's Parent

Would you like to see your children

Taking greater initiative at home and school?

Taking more responsibility for their actions?

Valuing togetherness as a family and wanting to spend more time with you?

Consistently treating peers, adults and themselves with respect?

Persisting through challenges and not giving up prematurely?

Being honest even when the truth is difficult to share?

Courageously facing fears?

Motivated to help with chores around the house?

Less influenced by negative peer pressure and able to stand up for what they believe in?

The character education movement, implemented by educators around the world, is an incredibly successful and growing phenomenon. When important character attributes like honesty, integrity, and fairness are modelled and taught, kids develop an inner compass that continues to guide them in a positive direction. Helping parents with their crucial participation at home has been the missing link—until now. In How to Influence Your Kids for Good, parenting expert and therapist Sara Dimerman shares proven techniques and a powerful, step-by-step plan that will help you bring your family together, improve communication, and unlock the very best in your children—and yourself.
