Simple Ways to Bring out the Best
in our Children and Ourselves

by Linda Kavelin-Popov with Dan Popov, Ph. D. and John Kavelin

We love this book. This is the original publication by the founders of The Virtues Project. This is the book we have used with our children and the book that inspired the "52 Virtues Project". Below is the description given on www.virtuesproject.com

This book is intended for parents and children to use together to nurture togetherness. The first section includes five simple strategies for raising children to live meaningful lives and to develop the virtues of their character. The second section contains 52 virtues, one for each week of the year, describing each virtue in simple terms, giving role play situations, how to practice it, and signs of success. It will engage family members of all ages in an exciting process of growth and discovery.

This book shows you how to:
- Learn the language of integrity and self-esteem
- Understand the five roles parents' play
- Discover ways to introduce sacred time into family life
