WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY Teaching Your Child Right from Wrong is a needed and valuable addition to the bookshelf of all parents and child caring personnel Punctuated by dozens of examples this is the story of how children can and should be stood by and supported in their relentless battle toward growth, maturation, education, socialization and the acquisition of a capacity to give and take, and love and be loved This is a book about learning to know the right; having the desire to follow it and the capacity to do so without an aura of the clinical and of psychopathology. This is a book on very real primary prevention of deviant behavior and mental illness. ROBERT E. SWITZER, M.D., Director, Children's Service, The Menninger Foundation Teaching Your Child Right from Wrong is very well done, and in a unique way. As parents read the little case histories throughout the book, they are bound to remit similar happenings in their own families and with their own chldren.
