Raising a child to be a mensch entails conscious and ongoing attention.
A mensch is someone who knows and does the right thing — consistently. But it’s not just because he or she happens to be a nice person. It’s because the person became a that way.

- A typical scenario involving a child and a particular middah, along with discussion questions

- A a practical challenge for the week
This book gives parents a hands-on way to engage young children in fascinating discussions about middos. By discussing classic scenarios and key issues, children absorb and integrate proper behavior for real life.
