Reviews

What is Respect tackles a difficult and timely subject. Any parent or teacher will find this book to be a stimulating and excellent tool to open a discussion on exploring the many nuances of Respect. The author presents a comprehensive and thoughtful examination of respecting oneself, others, animals and objects. As an Educational Psychologist and Social Worker who has worked for 30 years with children, ages 4 to 18, I highly recommend this book.

How do we teach our children respect and what exactly does that mean? Etan Boritzer does a masterful job of making this concept and its endless application to real life scenarios easy to understand. Read it along with your kids so you can talk to them about it as you go. I would definitely recommend this to parents in my Psychology practice and parenting classes. Boritzer’s entire series “What Is” books should be required reading!
