From the Inside Flap

Nurturing children is, perhaps, an exercise in perfecting our own nature. At times, one feels a failure when one aims for perfection and we discover much about ourselves as we help our children learn the attitudes and develop the skills to surmount the daily challenges of life. The nagging, negative parental attitude we often see can be stifling and stunting instead, we can opt for opportunities to be a wonderful parent ourselves. Nothing is perfect in this world, neither children nor parents-not even love itself. But we can always strive to improve. Robert Browning once said "A man's reach should exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?"

Format: Paperback
I am an avid reader of all sorts of books. Once in a great while, a book comes along everyone should read. I've read the authors writings and I am sure readers will find this book a very helpful guide while upbringing their children. It is the responsibility of every parent to teach the values of living. It is endless learning for them too. Children need care and love at every stage. I recommend this book as a practical guide to joyful living too. Enjoy
