Our Interview: Making Integrity Attractive & Practical for Your Kids
As vitally important as integrity is, it’s usually spoken of as an abstract philosophical concept that doesn’t connect with children, let alone excite them. It’s up to parents and educators to make integrity relevant, attractive, and practical for kids. Dr. Gruder illuminates precisely how you can do this through instilling self-responsibility in place of entitlement, accountability in place of “pass cards” or bullying, and impact in place of learned helplessness.
