Parenting with Purpose (Five Keys to Raising Children with Values and Vision)
Back >
AVAILABLE IN ARABIC

"Drawing on years of research and experience, this innovative guide explains how to develop desirable personal qualities—such as self-motivation, self-esteem, and compassion—in children of all ages. By developing these traits early in life, children are much more likely to grow into self-sufficient, responsible adults.
The structure and format of Parenting with Purpose makes it easy for parents, grandparents or caregivers to follow and implement strategies to help children develop values and vision. The book begins by asking parents, grandparents and other care givers to plan their parenting by first looking at experiences that were significant in their own lives; next, the reader is asked to determine the values that are important to them so they can emphasize those values while raising their children. Finally, the five keys to making it happen (Security, Identity, Belonging, Purpose and Competence) are introduced. An observational checklist helps parents determine where to start in raising children with positive values and a sense of the future.
The over 150 “Activities to Consider” help build and develop positive parent-child relationships and close family ties. These bonding activities are extensions of the specific concept being introduced to the child and help the child to internalize the concept. This nurturing from “the inside out” promotes the development of the child’s own inner strengths.
Designed for tots to teens, the activities help to reinforce those qualities that parents feel are most important. Helping a child develop scenarios for his/her future, talking about qualities he/she would like to be known for as an adult, and discussing what he/she can do to contribute to making a better world are just a few of the suggestions included. The authors also offer insights into the underlying causes of inappropriate behavior and how changing the way we parent can change those behaviors.
Of special value, readers will find chapters that focus on specific needs and situations such as parenting the gifted child, the foster child, and the child with learning disabilities, special physical needs, ADHD, or the spectrum of Autism.
