There is no single solution to the moral crisis of childhood in our culture. This chapter includes personal experiences of the author of this book who runs an adult education classes. The parents, teachers, pastors, and rabbis whom he teaches want something better for their children and are tired of hearing lamentation and excuses. To begin with, reading good stories to children is explored in this chapter. Hans Christian Anderson's ‘The Ugly Duckling’ is a masterpiece that also contains searing social criticism and profound insights into human nature and conduct. ‘The Ugly Duckling’ is a story that captivates children because it is also about growing up.
