Item description for Raising Courageous Kids: Eight Steps to Practical Heroism by Charles A. Smith...

Overview
Sooner or later, no matter how much we want to protect them, our children will face adversity when we cannot be there to help. Perhaps there will be a bully to deal with at school, an offer of drugs, or a life-threatening accident, attack, or illness. But eventually, in some way, life will demand that our children face fear, make choices, and take appropriate action. This groundbreaking guide explains how courage develops from birth to adolescence and provides solid information and practical ideas to help parents nurture courage at every stage.

Publishers Description
Our children's lives are filled with countless opportunities, both big and small, to make a difference in the world. And sooner or later, they will face adversity when we cannot be there to help them. Perhaps there will be a bully to deal with at school, an offer of drugs, or a life-threatening accident, attack, or illness. But eventually, in some way, life will demand that our children face fear, make choices, and take action. In this groundbreaking guide for parents, Charles Smith shows how to nurture the virtue of everyday courage in children. He explains how courage develops in eight stages from birth to early adolescence. And he provides solid information and practical ideas to help nurture courage at every one of those stages.

Reviews - What do customers think about Raising Courageous Kids: Eight Steps to Practical Heroism?

Compellingly practical  May 13, 2005
I saw this book and two other parenting books reviewed in my diocese's weekly paper. I bought "Raising Courageous Kids..." and another book mentioned in the review; I'm glad I did. Expecting merely an intellectual treatment, I was pleasantly surprised when I realized that - more than an eighth into the book - there were very realistic means to implement each of the eight steps discussed by Mr. Smith. This is the first book I've read from cover-to-cover in the past few years. What a way to get back into one of my favorite pasttimes!
I certainly would have appreciated having this book to raise my two daughters who are now young adults. The older one just made me a grandfather; my girlfriend became a grandmother a year and a half ago. These two young people are the reasons for my buying the book. Your first reviewer said that anyone connected with raising or regularly interacting with a child needs to get this book. I heartily agree!
 
Excellent Resource for parents with children of all ages  Aug 20, 2004
In the newly released book Raising Courageous Kids: Eight Steps to Practical Heroism (Sorin Books, July 2004), author Charles Smith offers parents a treasure chest of resources for recognizing and nurturing the qualities of courage and heroism within their children.

Looking at developmental stages between birth and adolescence, Raising Courageous Kids provides parents with practical, realistic guidelines for arming children to meet challenges with courage. As an added source of inspiration, Raising Courageous Kids features numerous "Mighty Heart" stories of children who have risen to the level of real-life heroes through tremendous acts of courage.

I strongly recommend that parents, teachers, grandparents and anyone playing a role in the raising of a child or young teen read this book and begin to implement its principles.
