In Bringing Up Moral Children in an Immoral World, Dr. A. Lynn Scoresby explains how to teach morality to children -- how to teach them to make wise choices and develop standards that contribute to their self-respect and self-esteem. Among the subjects Dr. Scoresby discusses are: the teaching power of love, hypocrisy, authority, peer pressure, sexual morality, self-destructiveness, money and property, chemical abuse, and healthy attitudes toward work. The author maintains that when parents commit their families to moral standards with love, skill, patience, and flexibility, they will find the greatest satisfaction for themselves and long-lasting happiness for their children.

This book is an all-around parent's guide to teaching children about responsibility, honesty, sexuality, friendship, work, money, property, authority, love, and other important principles for living a happy life.
