In this must-have guide for parents and educators, Jeanne Hunt focuses on how adults involved in children s lives can practice moral living and be strong witnesses of Christian morality. She provides simple methods and gentle encouragement to anyone who cares deeply about helping children understand what it means to make right choices and the effects of those choices.

Divided into nine easy-to-read and engaging chapters, Raising a Moral Child also offers prayers, discussion questions, and simple exercises to help readers integrate topics into family and school life. Chapters include Morality Is a Learned Behavior, The Gift of Respect, Feelings vs. Reason, Emotions Are Important, Consequences Are Real, Morality Happens in Groups, Prioritize a Moral Code, Be Fair, and Invite God.

Hunt s language is simple and does not require training in education or psychology. Raising a Moral Child is solidly based in Catholic moral teaching, offering methods to reinforce Catholic teaching by example. The book is an excellent resource for small faith-sharing groups, especially mom s and other parent groups, and for leaders of child-based organizations such as sports teams and scout groups. 191655 Jeanne Hunt
