PRIZE WINNER: BEST INDIE AND ROYAL DRAGONFLY BOOK AWARDS
Imagine knowing what your kids care about, having them listen to what you care about, then doing something about it, together! Communication and connection are the key, and this is exactly what this book allows you to do. It guides you through 40 conversations to have with your kids, ones that really matter. You will start having meaningful fun, learn to build friendships, grow in contentment, explore issues, and decide how to make an authentic contribution to the world, together.
When you start having the conversations in this book, your kids will start changing their world (which will in turn change yours too)!
Whether you're a parent, grandparent, educator or just care about kids and the world they're growing up in, this book will provide you with rich resources and surprising insights to create that genuine connection.
Inside, you’ll discover:
• Stories and research to inform your conversations
• Relationship skills to build empathy (like listening and conflict resolution)
• How to combat the worrying influences of our culture (like consumerism and technology)
• How to grow resilience, self-confidence, character, and strength
• How our kids can solve problems, rather than being brought down by them
• Thoughts and tips from other parents
• Advice from caring young adults about what worked for them!
In our complex world, we need to be aware of looming pitfalls and be intentional in helping kids navigate their way to compassion and wonder, driven by values and purpose. This path of conversations leads to amazing hope.
We all want kids to have happy, loving lives. As a society, we need kids who are also capable of thinking and acting beyond themselves to help others have happy, loving lives too. This book gives you what you'll need to achieve both.
“There is a huge secret to life which most families - and most parenting books - completely miss. That we humans are happiest when we are living for each other and discovering the fun that brings. In a society that is all about ‘me’ we have never been more stressed or miserable. Caring is a word that holds the key to life going well, and is the real heart of being human. This book shows you how to foster it. ~ Steve Biddulph, Parenting expert and best-selling author of Raising Girls and Raising Boys.
"We did the 'what's my superpower?' conversation last night and had a blast... laughing, arguing, thinking and TALKING. Tonight we sat outside around the fire and my son led 'listening well'. It made us all think deeply. It's been brilliant!" ~ A reader's family.
