Parents don't realize the power of positivity and the effects that negativity can have on their children.
The examples in this book really opened my eyes and at the smallest words can hurt our children, how constant negativity can be a real downer and how not giving our children enough praise or positive reinforcement can cause a lot of damage in the long run.
I really love how there are so many quotes from real kids in this book, especially teenagers who tell it like it is. As a parent of a teenager those words really hit home.
I highly recommend this book to all parents. It doesn't matter if your children are toddlers or teenagers.
This is advice you need.
And it's simple.
Love. Protect. Trust.
Live a positive life.
Lead through positivity, not negativity and punishment. Find balance, share the balance. Be loving. Be their friend but above all be a parent they can look up to.
