Serving a Shared Culture

By Josh Lambert

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, March 2010

Drawing on the work of Robert Coles, a child psychiatrist, professor and writer, the author discusses the moral consequences of stories that children read, watch and listen to. Coles asserts that narrative serves a hortatory function in the lives of youth. What matters, he emphasizes, is that we tell them stories and teach them how to interpret them.
