What does it take to be a winner. How do you depart this knowledge to your child. C. D. Shelton in his book Kid’s Guide to being a Winner breaks it down into 6 easy lessons.

Each lesson is prefaced by a clear easy to understand definition of tha t concept. Some of the insights presented:

Thoughtful is not teasing someone you know is sensitive to being teased.

Other lessons cover respect to teachers, the elderly, parents, etc
At about 36 pages, it’s a relatively thin book and can be read with a child in a short amount of time.

If you have a young child and want to help them understand the things it takes to become a positive member of society, then I think this book would help. I think it would be good for parents or teachers.

The one thing that I thought was probably negative was breaking things down to Winner and Loser. Loser is such a negative term, and seems to defeat the purpose of sections of this book.

However, that point aside I would recommend it.
