Published on: February 10, 2014International parenting expert, Barbara Coloroso will be the guest speaker at LSC-Kingwood, March 8 at 2 p.m. at the CLA Teaching Theater. Sponsored by LSC-Kingwood’s Associates of Arts in Teaching program and Pines Montessori, Coloroso will speak on developing character and fostering ethics in children and young adults.
Coloroso, whose topic is entitled, “Just because it’s not wrong doesn’t make it right: Teaching kids to think and act ethically” will discuss the messages children receive where the ‘ends justify the means’. Moreover, she will discuss the harmful, even violent behavior in families and in communities that goes unnoticed and unmitigated and where rigid moral absolutism or moral relativism has replaced ethical thinking.
Coloroso is an international bestselling author and for the past 38 years an internationally recognized speaker and consultant on parenting, teaching, school discipline, positive school climate, bullying, grieving, nonviolent conflict resolution and restorative justice.
She has appeared on Oprah, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN and NPR and has been featured in the New York Times, Time, U.S. News & World Report, Newsweek and other national and international publications.
