Transforming Values Into Virtue

September 6, 2018

Oakcrest Student Life Coordinator Holly Salls speaks on the moral development of teenagers and how parents can guide their daughters through the different stages of moral reasoning. She describes how high schoolers of different ages approach right and wrong in surprisingly different ways. Miss Salls gives concrete advice on how to cultivate empathy in your child and help her deal with self-consciousness, achieve a healthy balance between emotions and reason, and much more. Through it all she encourages parents to foster conversations with their daughters about important moral issues and to bring Christ into those conversations as well.

Miss Salls earned a B.A. from the University of Wisconsin, Madison and a M.A. in Philosophy of Education with a concentration in Character Education from the University of Navarra, Spain. She has authored a book entitled Character Education: Transforming Values into Virtue.
