Delattre, Edwin J.; Delattre, Alice B.
This generously illustrated booklet offers practical suggestions for helping young children appreciate the importance of acting responsibly in their everyday lives, and provides ideas and activities for parents to help encourage responsible behavior in their children. After defining responsible behavior and suggesting how parents can encourage it, the booklet describes activities or situations that parents can do or use to encourage their children to: (1) learn about other people; (2) acquire good manners; (3) be generous; (4) be honest; (5) display courage; (6) deal with bullies; (7) help with household chores; (8) learn the rewards of a job well done; (9) learn about heroic people; (10) face up to mistakes; (11) choose friends wisely; and (12) learn responsible behavior from stories that are read to them, or that they read on their own. The booklet also stresses the importance of parent-teacher and parent-parent cooperation, and provides a bibliography of 290 books, magazines, and other reading material appropriate for young children of various age groups. Designs and drawings appear on every page of the text. (MDM)
