Dreaming about a child's future begins long before the child is actually born. We wish for our children to be happy, successful, well adjusted, and healthy. Unfortunately, the world sends mixed messages, and children do not just download these qualities. How do we as parents ensure that our children have the empathy and integrity that we dreamed they would? How do we fight the all too human attributes of selfishness, self-absorption, complacency, bullying, and isolation and teach children to care?
The award-winning Kids Korps founders present parents with a fresh framework and the tools necessary to shape children into productive, well-adjusted, compassionate individuals. By focusing on the five Touchstones, they offer ways to surround their children with actions and messages designed to strengthen character, build self-esteem, and develop inner contentment.
