About this product
- DescriptionYou get a child, and all of a sudden you're a parent. But how do you bring it up? Annelies Wiersma discovered Linda Kavelin-Popov's books with their 52 inspiring virtues such as courage, enthusiasm and responsibility. She is a Virtues ProjectTM Master Facilitator and gives courses based on Linda Kavelin-Popov's educative methods. In this cheerful book with its comic-strip drawings she brings the theory to life with examples from her courses. And tells us in a touching, funny and intimate way about the practice she kws best: raising her own son. Linda Kavelin Popov says in the foreword: What do all parents want for their children? For them to be happy and for them to be good. The two are deeply connected, because a good character leads to a positive destiny. Every parent also needs tools to bring out the best in each child - to awaken their kindness, respect, flexibility, compassion, and even their joy. Annelies Wiersma offers the honest, open perspective of a mother applying the tools and strategies of The Virtues Project and my book, The Family Virtues Guide to make them deeply useful and totally accessible in everyday life. I heartily recommend that all parents read her book and enjoy her insights, her humour, and her practical wisdom.
