Although children eventually grow out of the Terrible Twos, they--and their fathers--face another developmental stage that can present similar challenges. In the pre-teen and teen years, the Other Terrible Toos can strain a dad's tolerance for his child's increasing desire for independence. In addition, the Other Terrible Toos can be a struggle for young people as they enter new environments and new relationships that test their values and self-discipline. This Spotlight suggests ways dads can recognize their children's virtues and character and help them learn to become responsible adults. It includes a section on defining virtue and character and gives recommendations for books and movies. (Author abstract modified)
