Item description for Character Immunization: How to Praise Children Strong Enough to Resist Popular Culture by Michael Hayutin...
Overview Millions of parents are overwhelmed by the overtly negative impact that the Internet, TV, and advertising are having on today's youth. Character Immunization can help you learn effective strategies to neutralize popular culture's impact on your children. Kids today are subjected to an unprecedented sensory barrage. Certain elements of popular culture may cause children to question traditional values unless they are properly "immunized" at home. Author Michael Hayutin offers up the concept of a character immune system. Like the biological immune system, it can be fortified if it receives the input it needs to function properly. While the biological immune system requires good nutrition, exercise and medical care, the C.I.S. thrives on a diet of old-fashioned traditional values. By detailing the many ways that our local and global villages have failed to support good character, Hayutin reminds parents of the primacy of their traditional roles. Character Immunization will inject parents with a booster shot of courage, conviction, and commitment. Strength of parental character will be the byproduct of the clarity of purpose and certainty of plan that one derives from this illuminating read.

Hayutin speaks for the "Silent Majority" Aug 28, 2006
Finally, a voice of reason surfaces from the detritus of the flotsam and jetsam of our celebrity-influenced culture. I cannot remember the number of instances I thought, "Yes! He's right -- I know that, too!" when I was reading his book. Hayutin tells the truth about what's going on today with our youth in a manner that every parent can relate to. And he's not timid about asking uncomfortable questions or heralding the truth, even if it's not quite "politically correct". What a breath of fresh air! His book is a passionate plea for the Silent Majority [my words] to wake up and join the movement to recognize the importance of basic morality and truth-based philosophy in teaching our children. If his writing style is a bit intense at times, it is consistent with the intensity of his message about the very real dangers facing our children today in a culture that is depraved. Bravo, Mr. Hayutin! We the [Silent Majority] agree with you and will be silent no more. Thongs for 13-year olds? Not in my household.
