Andrew Mullin's career in teaching has included over 25 years' teaching the humanities in Australian secondary schools, leading to his interest in presenting the wisdom of classical thinkers and philosophers. In his position as headmaster of Redfield College, Sydney, he has involved parents in the process of developing desirable values in young people. This book had its origins in a series of successful talks presented to parents.
'This book is essential reading for any parent who wishes to develop good character in their children. Andrew Mullins offers direction and encouragement to parents who want their children to be socially responsible and morally strong. In an engaging way, Parenting for Character offers practical advice on how to raise children of quality.' Dr Tim Hawkes, Headmaster, The King's School, and author of Boy Oh Boy. 'Effective quality parenting is incorrectly labelled by society as "assumed knowledge". Andrew Mullins helps parents erect scaffolds and to continually assess "work in progress". Parenting for Character is essential reading for all parents!' Michael Quinlan, Principal, James Ruse Agricultural High School.
