Have you noticed that a few kids often stand out from their peers? They are the exceptional young people who inspire, challenge and encourage us all. They are the Great Kids. The book Great Kids, the traits they share explores some of the common characteristics of Great Kids and the lessons to be learned from them. It examines the impact that parenting has on Great Kids and looks at how the parent or parents of these kids intuitively use some of the best advice from today’s parenting experts when dealing with the increasingly complex demands that modern society places upon parents.
Great Kids is not a prescriptive parenting manual. Instead, it presents common characteristics of Great Kids and the role parents play in developing these characteristics, so that parents and those who work with kids will recognize and be able to enhance their own parenting styles and practices. Great Kids is a valuable resource that gives parents and mentors a few more tools, a few new options to consider and a few resources to try as they embark upon their parenting journey.
