If Socrates Had Been a Parent
Socrates BookcoverIf Socrates Had Been a Parent is one of the finest and most practical tools developed by the Family Life Institute. It is a synthesis of the essential rudiments of the formation of virtue and the development of critical thinking in children. This book offers an educational approach so parents, teachers, and students can come to clearly understand the meaning of each virtue and see practical examples of how they are lived in the home, in the school, and in the Church.

It explains and utilizes the Socratic method for the benefit of teachers and parents and provides the "Socratic Table" containing examples of questions and the sequence to extend the reasoning of the child.
