Parenting with Purpose: Five Keys to Raising Children with Values and Vision

Front Cover
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. More than 50 enjoyable activities are provided that allow parents, grandparents, and caregivers to foster such advantageous attributes in children with ease. Specific chapters cover how to work with gifted children and children with learning or behavioral handicaps, and special attention is given to the needs of foster parents in facilitating the personal development of foster children.
