Would you rather your child was smart or good? Academic achievement is not the only important aspect of raising children. We also need to think consciously as to how we develop the next generation to be ethical thinkers and decent members of society. Ethical thinking has brought the world many things: democracy, freedom of speech and the end of slavery together with Monty Python, bikinis on Bondi Beach and Free Range Eggs. It is vital to the continued development of our world. The main place children learn basic morals and ethics is not from school or religion but from their parents in the home. Conversation is vital, and Ethics 101 Conversations to have with your Kids prompts discussion by posing 101 ethical questions and their logical progressions. The questions are perfectly pitched to the world of the 10 to 15 year old: from friendships, sport, parties and bullying, through to animal rights and climate change.

    Comments about Ethics 101:

    I was hoping this book would guide family discussions on ethical topics but it is sssoooo light on detail, it is almost useless unless you have a strong background in philosophy and want a checklist of topics to discuss.

      Comments about Ethics 101:

      I work in the welfare sector with parents and adolescents. This book is a great way for parents and adolescents to engage with each other around those conversations that young people today often miss out on. The book poses the question to parents - "Would you prefer your child to be intellectually smart or a good person". And you cant choose both! My experience is that the majority of parents answer "good". Well this book will help those parents get their wish.
