Dr George Simon Jr. – his internet writings and his books
This post is simply to pass on more information about George Simon Jr’s writings.
Dr George Simon, PhD, has been a fairly prolific blogger at various sites, which to my mind shows how generous he is in sharing his knowledge and wisdom. As our readers know, we very much endorse the work of Dr George Simon Jr (he doesn’t pay us to do that, by the way).

And here is a taster from his post Budding Psychopaths or Immature Characters? (italics added)
I assert that character development in children is a 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week, lifelong process. . . . Research is suggesting that for some individuals, biologically-based differences do indeed seem to impede progress in that process. But I have met only a few individuals in my lifetime who appeared so biologically disadvantaged that they simply couldn’t learn to do better.
