How to raise children with the strength to resist popular culture. A metaphor that offers the concept that the human soul has a character building capacity that thrives on the input of traditional Judeo-Christian values.
Character Immunization: How To Raise Children Strong Enough To Resist Popular Culture, by Michael Hayutin
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Michael Hayutin grew up in a conservatively religious middle-class Jewish home. He graduated from the University of Southern California in 1974 and South Texas College of Law in 1978. He has had the good fortune to play a major role--from diapers, to homework, to daily problem solving--in raising his two.
" In Character Immunization Hayutin deals with one of the greatest challenges of our time, how to immunize our children against the terrible corruption of an increasingly decadent culture. His suggestion of the installation of Judeo-Christian values being instrumental to that immunization is spot on. It's about time someone wrote a major work on rescuing our kids from the sewer of misogyny and sexual exploitation to which they are increasingly exposed to in the culture"
--Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, famous author, host of upcoming The Learning Channel program "Shalom in the Home"
" Moral relativism and secularism now dominate our cultural landscape. Michael Hayutin lays out the challenges parents face today in raising responsible kids with a moral compass. He also gives real life solutions and answers to these challenges. Read the book. It will help you become a better parent."
--Tim Wildmon, President, American Family Association
