Following up on their excellent earlier work, The Roller-Coaster Years:
Raising Your Child Through the Magical yet Maddening School Years, Giannetti
and Sagarese-online parenting experts for iVillage's Parentsoup web site-here
focus on rescuing "middlers" (ten- to 15year-olds) from a wide range of
predicaments. Without effective coping and teaching skills, many
parents can make serious mistakes and watch their middlers struggle in
delinquent behaviors. The authors provide a wide range of resources and
preventive strategies in an expertly organized, lucid format supported
by the latest research.
Psychologist Czudner has written an equally timely book. He discusses "budding
criminals" (ages two to 17): morally illiterate juveniles who are not very
"nice children" even if they do not end up in jail. They are addicted to
power and try to obtain it through activities ranging from classroom disruption
to murder. Early detection helps, as does the teaching of "pro-social"
skills and moral values based on understanding and feeling. Nurturing feelings
of empathy and guilt makes children responsive to the suffering of others.
Czudner considers empathy innate and guilt a "positive human characteristic."
He decries the excessive modern preoccupation with self-awareness, self-love,
and self-esteem, arguing that what is needed is for children to become
morally and emotionally intelligent. Excellent companion reading to Daniel
P. Goleman's Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ (LJ
9/1/95).Chogollah Maroufi, California State Unit:, Los Angeles
