    1. How do we develop morally courageous children in a world that doesn t necessarily reward that This is probably the main theme of the book I enjoyed reading it, though it took me a bit to get into it Bullying, overprotective parents, and predators are some of the other issues covered in this book We want to be able to help our children not only to recognize what s bad about the world, identify it, not do it, but also replace that with action that will recognize and step into injustice, replace ba [...]

    2. It was pretty good The real practical stuff didn t happen until the last sections of the book The whole first half seemed to be about convincing the reader why it s best not to be overprotective It also talks a lot about how bullying is not ok and how sad it is that much of society sees it as a necessary part of growing up All that intro could have been shortened significantly The last parts of the book gave some great info on better and updated teaching for your kids about dealing with strange [...]

    4. This book addresses raising internally moral children versus external nice children Many parents today strive to raise nice kids and in doing so also open children up to bullying and co dependency This book strikes a middle ground on tough love, permissive and democratic parenting styles.

    5. This book had research behind the philosophy and then offered suggestions and even an evaluation for parents Perfect for our times when we must have moral courage or we will border on falling victim to tyrants once again I asked myself some hard questions about my own moral courage while reading Worthy read Best chapter is the last one.

    6. He makes some good points about how to raise children who are courageous and independent My problem is Coughlin acts like this is the recipe for all children as if this is some fix to solve all of society s problems.

    7. Chapter 6 Spotting and Repelling Adult Predators is worth the read if you don t have time for anything else Eye vopening and my reason for selecting this book.
