American families are sick of rudeness, aggression, and unruly behavior. They are searching for ways to cool down society -- and bring up kids who win at life by peaceful, compassionate, and rational means, rather than the opposite. This is the book that casts out a new lifeline to them and speaks positively to their deepest needs and yearnings. Explaining that kindness is the heart and core of civility and manners in any society, Letitia Baldrige, America's number one best-selling authority on manners, has finally written the book that millions have been waiting for: a road map to raising and guiding kids who succeed in life through decency and honor. "It all starts in the home," says Baldrige, as she shows parents and other concerned adults how to teach kids to: Gain respect and become leaders -- at home, at school, and in the larger world -- without becoming wimps or bullies. Defuse explosive situations with words and actions that turn hostility into harmony. Use conciliation instead of confrontation with peers, authority figures, and others. Be courteous and compassionate with family and friends and out in public while still standing up for themselves. Learn behaviors that will make them liked and respected and will make the world around them a better place as they grow up. And much more... Baldrige accomplishes this using real-life examples of encounters between adults and young people and the day-to-day interactions between young peers -- at home, at school, and out in the world -- plus the compelling and often personal true stories and anecdotes that have made her other books so warm and conversational and loved by millions. In his longtime best-selling Book of Virtues, William Bennett showed us the values we should strive for to get life back on track again. In her book, Letitia Baldrige shows us how to apply those principles in everyday life, twenty-four hours a day -- and get results!
