About the author (2010)

William Damon, born in 1944, is a professor of education and human development at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and a consultant to the Children's Television Workshop. His books, The Moral Child (1990) and Greater Expectations (1995), concern the development and teaching of basic virtues and the difficulties of raising a moral child in a materialistic society. Some Do Care (1992), co-authored with his wife, Anne Colby, describes the lives of twenty-three people who demonstrate the altruistic nature that we wish our children to have.
