“Why oh why are my kids so different from me?”
Our kids’ personalities fascinate us – they always have. It’s the reason the ‘nature’ versus ‘nurture’ debate goes on and on. But their personalities also challenge us because they are so often at odds with our own.
The problem is that to have any hope of fully understanding our kids, we – as parents – need to properly understand ourselves first. That has not been easy to do … until now.
'Knowing Me, Knowing Them' is a book designed specifically to help parents get a solid grasp of what it is that makes them tick. In three steps, this book will:
1.Help you discover your parenting personality type using the Enneagram
2.Explore how your personality affects your parenting style.
3.Provide further resources to help you unlock your children’s potential.
Reading 'Knowing Me, Knowing Them' will provide you with plenty of ‘aha!’ moments. You will spend less time worrying about and judging your parenting approach. And you will spend more time enjoying the wonderful, all-too-quick experience of raising your children.
