What parents want most from their children is respect. But in order to give it, children need to experience it first; they need to know what respect is---what it means, what it feels like, and how to show it. They cannot give what they have never received.
27 Secrets to Raising Amazing Children is all about respect---what it is, what it is not, how to give it and how to get it. Beginning in infancy and throughout life, respect is one of the key steps to building close and lasting relationships. It can even mend broken relationships.
Many readers report that the ways of respect prescribed for the parent-child relationship apply to any relationship. In addition to the true-to-life anecdotes in the book that show how to respect children, you will find clear definitions, explanations and guidelines. You also will find your own highest ideals and values among the pages of 27 Secrets.
This book cannot give you what it takes to be a good parent, you already have that. But what it can do is show you how to practice your own ideals and values in everyday living.
